Please Join 'Oprah, Libraries Need You!'

If you're on facebook and haven't yet joined, please sign up for our group to try to get Oprah to devote a show (or two) to the needs of public and school libraries in this time of economic crisis. In less than a month, the group has grown to 1400 members.

The group began as a dream that author Marilyn ("This Book is Overdue") Johnson had, in which she asked Oprah to help libraries, and Oprah, being the savvy and book-loving woman that she is, said that she would. Now we have to make the dream become a reality.

If you can tell a personal story about how your library has served your community or a special individual, please post it on the group's wall. Nothing like a testimonial to inspire the group's members and hopefully...Oprah.

In a few weeks we're planning an active campaign to get Oprah onboard, and YOUR VOICE IS NEEDED to add to the voices of everyone who needs libraries (yeah, and who doesn't?); librarians, patrons, authors, teachers, kids, teens, parents, scholars, young and old professionals, seniors, and the occasional cat & or groundhog.

Join us!! Spread the news on that old reliable librarian grapevine!! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=132862353428325&ref=ts ...and invite your friends and patrons! http://is.gd/fuL2q Please (I'm begging you!!).
