The Rally

Hundreds turned out for the Rally to save Michigan Libraries.  I am impressed, insipred and in general awe at how awesome librarians are.  I am so thankful the my Dean, Lee Van Orsdel, supported us going to the event.  I was also happy to see over 50 librarians from my local public library (Grand Rapids Public Library). 

The greatest thing about the rally was that we’ve been heard.  The governor has revised her Executive Order twice, and we will not have the major cuts like we thought.  Yes the Library of Michigan will be rolled under the Department of Education, but in my home state (Illinois) the library is under the Secretarty of State:(  So not to bad. 

Here are a few pics:
