Celebrating National Library Week (April 10-16, 2011): Presenting Our New Program Trailer
Continuing our anticipated celebration of National Library Week (April 10-16, 2011), we present our program trailer that forecasts a foreboding future if folks forget (what great alliteration!) how important libraries are to their everyday lives. Although library services appear to be "free," they must be funded, and in the case of public libraries or academic libraries at public institutions, we taxpayers must pony up the cash. That's not a popular theme these days, but it is important to remember what happens to governmental services when the money stops. It is a mistake to take these things for granted.
