Libraries Continue to be a Hot News Topic

Public libraries continue to get media attention for their booming business during tough economic times, in part because of efforts by the American Library Association and President Jim Rettig to promote their value. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal as well as several in Wisconsin newspapers (for example, see the Wisconsin State Journal, a blogged testimonial on using Hedberg Public Library to save money, and a Fond du Lac Reporter story) touts increased use of computers, Wi-Fi, as well as movies and books, as people search for jobs and try to save money.
