Even if you are not in the Library trade, this is still an interesting article about the changing look of Librarians today.

This article talks about the movie, Hollywood Librarians, which was created by a Librarian to show the real side of Librarians. Stereotyped by society, this is a call to realize the value of Librarians and Libraries in the community, especially in the face of constant cut backs in library Budgets!

"Public libraries are just about the last place that anyone can go. We serve the homeless and the mentally ill, we teach the disenfranchised how to use the Internet. We're also the last bastions of democracy and free speech, which is in short supply under this administration." ~Darby O'Brien, Librarian Utica, NY
