Save Our Small Public Libraries

The scope of this blog is to provide ALL information about the current Librarian Certification and possible consolidation of Public Libraries here in Indiana. My goal is to present an easy forum for the exchange of factual information and opinions.

I plan to post on what is happening regarding this issue, why it is happening and how we are going to help by giving options and alternatives etc. The better informed Indiana Librarians and their local taxpayers are, then the better we will all be. If we are not part of the solution, then we are part of the problem. I am willing to do what is necessary for the betterment of my community and my state.

PLEASE. Forward to me links to whatever is relevant to this issue and I will post it. Any information/articles/pictures/opinions/comments, whatever. I will not
censure what is provided. All I want is a fair chance for the public to
understand our challenges.

Maybe I should have entitled this blog as Save Our Small and Medium Sized Public
Libraries, but the acronym was too long to remember.

ALSO AND PLEASE NOTE

This blog in no way reflective of the official thoughts and opinions of the New Carlisle - Olive Township Public Library Board of Trustees, New Carlisle, St. Joseph County, Indiana. This blog is my personal blog and is maintained by me while NOT on library time.

My personal opinions on the topics of Librarian Certification and the potential consolidation of public libraries in Indiana will be readily apparent as you read my posts.

Any errors or omissions are my own and corrections will be duly noted.
