Frankly, I’m not sure how I ended up here. I’m still going, “What? Wait…what?” That’s how fast the North Suburban Library System went from thriving, vibrant organization to out of business, thanks to the state of Illinois. A group of very fine, talented, and hard-working people are being put out of work because the money budgeted is being withheld to the point where the organization can’t continue. Despite the fact that working cooperatively saves money, and the state is going to end up spending more by losing the infrastructure to manage some of their programs, the library systems are being allowed to collapse. It’s stupid and I’m angry.
So, my blog goes from being one of the NSLS blogs to being my own, and the one good thing about that is that now I can speak my mind without representing NSLS. The focus for now will continue to be working as a Youth Services librarian and manager, and your comments are very welcome.
