Across the country libraries are facing budget cuts, staff cuts, and sometimes even suffering from pure politics. Remember the story around my "Save the Library" coloring page?
You only need visit your local library for an hour to realize our libraries are resources we cannot afford to lose. Too many people rely on them. They are vital to our communities and to literacy in general.
So how can you help? Part of the battle is in staying informed. Visit Losing Libraries where you can learn more and report cuts to libraries in your area.
And remember, my "Save the Library" coloring page is available to any library in high resolution. You can print it out to color, make postcards to mail your City Councils, use it for book bags, t-shirts, hats, whatever. It's my way to try to help.
