Amy wrote an excellent article about the state of libraries, and I just have to share it. Please take a moment to read it here.
To really put it into perspective, she is that strong of a writer, has a master's degree in library science, and can't currently get a job because of continual cuts to public libraries! It drives me crazy. My Mom is a librarian, so it's already a cause close to my heart. Amy is a hysterical, intelligent, hard working, dedicated individual, and her article is a real wake up call to how much we need libraries now more than ever.
