Making the Case for Support of Libraries

We have to focus now, more than ever, on making the case for support of libraries. Today I heard several very disheartening stories from public libraries struggling with budget cuts, dealing with political officials that don't really understand the role of the library, and even supporters who spread misinformation about library goals. It can be difficult to stay motivated in some of these situations. We know how important libraries are and we appreciate the unique and fulfilling role they play in many people's lives.
