Library 2.0

This is one of the best descriptions for the general public I have seen for library 2.0. It is from the Rapid City Public Library's website. Their director, Greta Chapman is one of two people who have had a profound effect on my development as a librarian and an information professional.

The new Sunday Library=Borders!

Since funding is so low in Longmont and the surrounding cities, people are flocking to the local Borders to get their reading fix as well as their gourmet coffee fix.

Greetings Holli, 

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.
