Why do people love their library?

Snow TracksBrian Mathews is Associate Dean for Learning and Outreach at Virginia Tech, and usually has interesting things to say about libraries. Brian shares….”It is easy to develop assumptions about what a library is or what it should be, especially if you work in administration. But I encourage everyone to stop once in a while and ask people why they are in your building. Not just what they are doing, but why library space instead of anywhere else. The answers may surprise you.”

Some of the stories he tells remind me of why I frequented the library during my college career! Read Brian’s post at Why do people who love libraries love libraries?
