As we near the end of 2011 and approach the beginning of 2012, it might be a good time to get thoughtful, or at the very least intentional. We all need to work hard to change how libraries are viewed by our communities. Change is happening so very fast, and we need to be willing to change how we have been operating over the years. Change is hard but necessary.
Roy Tennant’s blog post at http://www.thedigitalshift.com/2011/12/ebooks/the-longest-night/ reminds us that “Libraries are a societal good” and “ Access to information is not ubiquitous, nor equal, nor (still) as easy as it can or should be.”
It is a short read and well worth your time. Happy New Year everyone!
