National Library Week

For most people, libraries equal books—shelf after shelf of books and maybe a computer or two off in the corner. I would like to challenge that perception. Not because I don’t love books. I do. As much as I love books and stories of all sorts, I also strongly believe that they aren’t what libraries are about. It’s National Library Week, and I am going to be posting about what libraries are about all week long. My hope is to open the equation about libraries that you have in your head to more than books, to show you that libraries matter—perhaps in ways you haven’t considered.

Libraries are about community and education. Librarians are your guide to the world of resources out there from books, to technology, to people. We want to connect with you.

The official theme of National Library Week 2013 is Communities Matter, so I’ll start with that tomorrow.
