Making a Difference


When people ask why I chose librarianship as a career, I always say it was because I wanted to make a difference. And here are some ways librarians make that happen…

For many patrons of the library, I am the only person they’ve spoken to all day.

Libraries are the gateway to 21st Century Skills and help to bridge the digital divide.

They like to be creative and think big—really big.

They provide the tools to end illiteracy.

Librarians help those in need to transform and improve their lives.

They like to share their services in improbable places.

Libraries are a mark of what we, as a country, stand for.

Librarians help start children on the path to success by encouraging family reading engagement.

They are leaders in technology, creativity, and innovation.

Because libraries and librarians make a difference in the lives of people.
