We’re at ALA in San Antonio, handing out buttons that say, “Libraries make the world a better place.” These go with our book project, The Libraries We Love (and nominations are still open, till Valentine’s Day). At the opening reception a couple of Texan librarians came by and said they worked in the penal system. “We should be nominated–our patrons love us!” they said. We’re happy to take nominations from prisons or anywhere else. Libraries are for everyone.
Apparently in prisons the most popular subjects are self-help and religion.
