Just a quickie – here’s a link to Maureen O’Reilly’s deputation on Monday night. I thought it was fascinating that the proposed library cuts have generated the most emails to City Hall EVER. Librarians need to be thinking about this… there is a whole lotta love for libraries out there. How can we (a) harness this energy to help us build better libraries (rather than just defend ourselves from constant cuts) and (b) make the role of librarians and library staff more visible – so that people understand that their libraries are good because the staff makes them so?

Also, I’ve updated the blogroll! Take a look, there’s some good reading in there. Suggestions regarding other progressive/social justice focused librarian blogs are welcome.
