Worldwide, there are hundreds of thousands of jobs left open, waiting for employees who have the skills necessary to fill them. At the same time,  so many highly competent workers are left without jobs.

No wonder physical libraries continue to capture the public’s imagination, along with their contents.

In Evanston, Illinois, where the Friends of the Library fought long and hard to keep the South branch open but ultimately lost the battle with the city council, the Friends are celebrating the first anniversary of their makeshift volunteer-run replacement, the Mighty Twig branch. These steps forward wouldn’t be possibilities if it weren’t for the perseverance of grassroots support—and that culture of sharing that libraries embody.
