Flashback Fridays: Public Libraries and the Economy
I was looking for a possible post for this week's installment and I found this post (from 2008!) about how public libraries can help their patrons during tough economic times. I was upset that the economic downturn is still here 2 full years later, but I was happy to see I did start a label for "economy" to compile all of my posts since that first one, dealing with how your local library can help ease your economic strain.
I am a Librarian [MLIS] in Illinois specializing in serving leisure readers ages 13 and up. I train library staff all over the world on how to match books with readers through their local public library. I am the author of The Readers’ Advisory Guide to Horror, 2d edition (ALA Editions, 2012). I am under contract to write content for EBSCO's NoveList database, reviews for Booklist, am a member of the Adult Reading Round Table Steering Committee, a 5 term Trustee for my local library, and am a proud member of The Horror Writers' Association.
