1. I always love a headline that presumes to inform an entire profession about what else it could be doing. Because librarians aren’t doing much of anything out there—no programs, no reader’s advisory, no stretching dollars, no research or reference requests, no accommodations of the public and community… This may get a little more ranty than I usually am on this blog, but reading the second part of this post from David Vinjamuri at Forbes (“Why Public Libraries Matter: And How They Can Do More”) got my hackles up in so many ways.
