“Well-run libraries are filled with people because what a good library offers cannot be easily found elsewhere: an indoor public space in which you do not have to buy anything in order to stay.” Zadie Smith

15TH OCTOBER - BLOG ACTION DAY: THE POWER OF WE
LIBRARIES could not be as much indispensable as today. We live in a complex world in which information plays a crucial role. Whenever information becomes knowledge, we feel more and more empowered in relation to society, we feel more capable of fighting for our rights as human beings. Libraries (public and school libraries) are our best allies. There we can find the people (librarians), resources and tools we need. And, in many, many libraries, we can have all these 24/7!
That is why we should stay together to prevent politicians who want close libraries or reduce the funding to them. THE POWER OF WE can prevent these foolishness because what is in danger is our freedom!
See what people all around the world is blogging today!
