Twitter Proves Libraries are Important

Mar Dixon never expected such a reaction when she tweeted this message:

“Libraries are important because … [fill in your answer & RT] #savelibraries.”

Even Neil Gaiman weighed in along with more than 5,000 others. This article in the Guardian UK gives the saliant details.

Some of the highlights include tweets like this one by @genrelibrarian: “Google can bring back a hundred thousand answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.”

The tweet was picked up in the United States, Italy and Portugal becoming an international phenomenon and trending on Twitter.

So why are so many places still considering reductions in library services?
