The Rally

Here are some great pics

From LJ I found out that over 500 librarians gathered to protest the cuts in funding for Michigan librarians and MEL. 

It is great news that “Vigorous advocacy by library supporters in Michigan has pushed Gov. Jennifer Granholm to modify her July 13 Executive Order with a directive prioritizing continued support and funding for the statewide library book and electronic material sharing programs, Michigan eLibrary (MeL) and Michigan eLibrary Catalog (MeLCat), as well as ensuring that a State Librarian position remains, even if the job is no longer a political appointment.” (LJ).

This is not a perfect victory, but a victory none-the-less.
