This quote sums it up and puts a big smile on my face. Ain’t it true, folks? Ain’t it true?
From American Libraries December 2006 (Yes, I’m a little behind on my professional reading!):
“Supporting your local non-chain bookstore is great, but libraries can use attention, too. And in libraries, you get the same array as in bookstores–or maybe 1000 times more–for free. The only requirement is sending the book back, which shouldn’t really tax the ability of generations trained to rent and return DVDs in 48 hours.” –Rod Davis “Why I (Still) Love the Library.” Southwest Airlines Spirit, October
