Librarians are Our Heroes

I just finished reading listening to this book.

This Book Is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All, and I loved it.  Of course, I already love libraries and librarians, but it was just interesting to hear about everything librarians do and how important they are.

One of the quotes I really liked was, "In these tough economic times, a librarian is a terrible thing to waste."

It makes me think that all town board members or municipal law-makers who have anything to do with approving library budgets should read or listen to this.  They probably get more for their money (the taxpayers' money) when they designate it for their local libraries than they do anywhere else.

At least that's what I think.  Anyway, if you love libraries or just want to know more about what librarians do, read this book.
