Librarian shortage leads to campaign

Librarian shortage leads to campaign. – “Librarians help people conquer medical crises, watch kids' eyes light up when they learn to read and go on treasure hunts. They wonder why people aren't clamoring to do their job.”

“Karen Bersche, communication consultant at Bloomington's Alliance Library System, said a shortage of librarians in Illinois is getting worse. Her office is using a $102,000 grant to fight the shortage with “The Great Librarian Adventure Campaign.”

“The campaign tries to erase the stereotype of bespectacled librarians sitting behind a desk, stamping books all day.” (from The Pentagraph) [Library Stuff]
