Libraries in the news

Well, in The New York Times, at least.  Two recent articles about very different kinds of libraries:  a mobile library on burros in Colombia, and New York City libraries buying and lending a new kind of “urban fiction.”  The common theme, to me, is that librarians (credentialed or not) are staying in touch with a changing world, and that sharing books, information, and knowledge is still one of the foundations of a working civilization.
