1. [Congressional representatives] need to know that we are an educational institution. We’re not Blockbuster. Entertainment is part of our business, but our major business is education and literacy.


    Kevin Smith, What congressmen need to know about libraries (via libraryadvocates)

    Amazingly a lot of people complain about the fact that you can check out dvds from the library, as if the only thing we are is a free rental store, and it is utterly ridiculous not to mention wrong.

    I am also convinced that those who complain about these things don’t actually use libraries.
