Each week, we reflect on the top articles, blog posts, tweets, news, thoughts, and other tidbits we’ve found interesting or useful. Check out what our writers have spotted this week in library news. Enjoy!
When fake news is prevalent and print journalism is in crisis, do you know where to turn? (well… I might be preaching to the choir here.) The answer, to myself and apparently to The Atlantic as well, is: the library! I read a a story this week on The Atlantic answering this question while also discussing Marilyn Johnson’s This Book is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All. As a fan of small town libraries and the superheroes who run them, it was very cool to see the credit returned where it was [over]due.
