Libraries Transform...

  • Because the best search engine in the library is the Librarian.
  • Because there are more than 14,400,000 search results for the 2016 Presidential election.
  • Because the world is at their fingertips and the world can be a scary place.
  • Because adding Minecraft to Curriculum may inspire more future engineers than mathematics alone.
  • Because Fake News can have Real World consequences.
  • Because students can't afford scholarly journals on a Ramen noodle budget.
  • Because txt r fine, but, srsly, ppl also need 2 c real sentences.
  • Because employers want candidates who know the difference between a web search and research.
  • Because there is no single source for information (Sorry, Wikipedia).
  • Because students who spend time reading over the summer, end up on the honor roll in the fall.
  • Because punctuation without imagination makes a sentence, not a story.
