John Berry: I'm Glad I'm Not a Director

I used to think I'd like to be the director of a public library. Not any more. From coast to coast and border to border, library directors are under the gun. It has been that way for a decade now. If they aren't under attack from some anti-immigrant nut in Congress for having materials in the Spanish language, they're fighting with their unions because they beat up on some staff member who told a library user that she hated the new RFID system.

Go read John Berry's excellent editorial, I'm Glad I'm Not a Director, in the June Library Journal.


His point about our anti-tax mindset, as a culture, is true as well.
