A lot has happened since we last wrote about the Huffington Post‘s special “Libraries in Crisis.”  Public libraries nationwide are facing the 21st century with threatened budgets, layoffs, and fewer hours, but also the resolve and creativity to stay open and stay relevant.

Read about how Detroit schoolchildren are opening outdoor libraries during the hours their public library branches are closed.

Read about how some libraries are working to persuade major publishers to sell them e-books at reasonable prices.

Read from the president of the American Library Association on why she believes libraries are more important than ever.

And, as always, come into your library!  We’re still here, and we’d like to see you!
