Check out the Colorado Library blog, The Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal.
While this is aimed at public libraries, the truth is no less relevant to school librarians.
These are the facts folks: When our libraries are in trouble we have three choices:
1. We can do nothing, and decline in silence.
2. We can complain about the situation to ourselves.
3. We can take steps to positively influence & reframe public perceptions about the financial support of libraries.
Which choice most benefits you, your school, your students, and future school librarians?
