When 103-Year Old Dies, Her Reading Circle Mourns | LISNews:
Although this article has nothing directly to do with libraries it has everything to do with what libraries should stand for. Libraries are places of fellowship as much as places of reading. If people could walk in and feel as connected as Mrs. Goodyear’s neighbors felt as they helped her, the library would be secure in its place in the community. We can talk about new technology, databases, and the latest books, but if we can’t offer the simplest service of connecting on a deeper human level then we have gained nothing.
Can’t you just see students providing a similar service in their library club?
