MD HB 1131

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 7:05 PM
Being a librarian isn’t always about reading books or answering reference questions. It’s often about advocating for the library and its services, either locally or on a state level.
Learning to talk about the library with library patrons already coming in the door is easy. Those are the folks who have a few minutes to spare as they pick up their holds or check out a new release. They are the people who love the library already.
