I think that’s right Samantha, I was outraged by the juxtaposition of the 2 pieces of information that grabbed my attention this week – First that our kids are essentially being cared for after schoool in places likes libraries and secondly that libraries are seen as so unimportant that they can be run by volunteers! That makes our kids unimportant as well as all the programs, products and services that libraries provide! I was surprised that this was happening, pleased that libraries were stepping in to help and then outraged by the downgrading of libraries.

There re some fantastic volunteers out there but unless those volunteers themselves are professionally trained librarians this is a situation where everyone misses out!

End of rant #2 🙂
