LIBRARIES ARE IMPORTANT
The Internet provides expanding opportunities for everyone to participate in the information society, but too many individuals face serious barriers to access. Libraries play a critical role in bridging information access gaps for these individuals. Libraries also ensure that the public can find content of interest and learn the necessary skills to use information successfully.

We had the Alaska Library Association conference last week and internet and information access reigned supreme. I appreciate the work the librarians and information professionals do across Alaska to provide access to information for our communities.
I plan to feature some of their work in coming posts, but first, I’m going to take a social media break so I may get down to the business of graduating this semester.
