Juno sent me this link about a week ago.

I scanned it then and then read it thoroughly including all the great comments that had accrued in a week’s time. Here’s an excerpt to get you interested…

Why aren’t there letter writing campaigns in support of libraries across America? Shouldn’t there be at least a bookmobile in every rural community and inner city neighborhood? Shouldn’t we be striving to make sure every Headstart Program has a library, every Girls and Boys Club? Why is the literary community more concerned about reviewing books then making sure that books get to the people who have the lowest access to them? On NPR John Freeman made a point of saying that while lit blogs are a good thing, not everyone has a computer.
