A librarian is always surrounded by facts and fiction, whether on the shelves, online or in the world around her. It's her challenge and her joy to revel in the fantasies and stories that enrich our hearts and souls and to cut out the fallacies and dead ends to get to the truth. This blog is about a personal and professional search for both truth and fiction and how to tell the difference.
Now, when I read constantly about the way in which library funds are being cut and cut, I can only think that the door is closing and that American society has found one more way to destroy itself." — Isaac Asimov
