Perhaps this year everyone should wear black to observe National Library Week. Considering the economic state of our libraries, and how many librarians are loosing their jobs, it would be more appropriate!
Some people say libraries are old-fashioned, they're lost in a new society. No. It's all learning in a new environment.
