A2: Library

On her director’s blog, Josie Parker of the Ann Arbor District Library writes about the library’s opposition to Gov. Granholm’s executive order abolishing the Department of History, Arts and Libraries: “It is an irony that in a time when all are calling for efficiency, resource-sharing, consolidation of services, and collaborations to save and find money, a state institution that has led statewide programs that work for the benefit of all Michigan citizens, and which help to provide the critical tools needed for our workforce to reinvent itself, is threatened because someone has the very uncool and uninformed notion that libraries are obsolete.” [Source]
