The Way We Are
Here's an encouraging article from USA Today. It says that libraries are busier than ever because of the ways they've transformed from book repositories into community centers. We've always been busy here at Liverpool. Our library averages 1000-1200 people through the door every day. Patrons who are new often comment, "Wow, this place is really busy!" And sometimes it's not very quiet either. Most libraries are this way now and we encourage it. I try not to "shush" anyone unless they're really loud or having a conversation across the room. Maybe the folks at Sharp should visit their local library before they trademark a phrase like this one.
