Libraries are full of stories in a variety of formats from picture books to large print, audiobooks to ebooks, and more. But there’s so much more to the story. Libraries of Things lend items like museum passes, games, musical instruments, and tools. Library programming brings communities together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, storytimes, movie nights, crafting classes, and lectures. Library infrastructure advances communities, providing internet and technology access, literacy skills, and support for businesses, job seekers, and entrepreneurs. National Library Week 2023 will be a great time to tell your library’s multi-faceted story.

This is so depressing–and scary as hell.
I can’t even read all the news articles about the latest incident any more. Sort of related: Have you seen the Judy Blume documentary on Amazon Prime? Since I’m only about 10 years younger than Judy, I didn’t grow up with her books. The documentary is good at focusing on how progressive her career has been. There’s a lot about kids writing letters to her because nobody else would talk with them about issues like puberty, sex, assault, bullying, etc.
