This book is Overdue! How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All

Love your librarian? I do, and so does author Marilyn Johnson. In today's fast paced digital world, our librarians are more important than ever. They are forging ahead on the digital frontiers, learning how to navigate it, and then acting as living, breathing GPS units for library patrons- free of charge. This is incredibly important in a time when people are losing their jobs or are being downsized, and need technology to help them get ahead; when parents can't afford the digital resources their children need to succeed at school. All the while librarians are continuing to archive the past, integrating technology and good old paper storage, and oh, protecting our right to have our library records remain private.
Our librarians have always been important, and now they are more valuable than ever. Read this book in honour of your favourite librarian. Mine is Friendly Neighborhood Librarian , who was my kids' storytime librarian for years and continues to be in their lives as they have long been reading novels.
