“A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them.”

DC Mayor Declares Libraries “Essential,” Will Stay Open If Government Shuts Down

libraryjournal:

On Wednesday, Gray sent a terse letter to the federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) that deemed all local government employees—including librarians—“essential” personnel, putting them in the same category as police officers, firefighters, and teachers. That means they would be exempted from a government shutdown, and allowed to report to work and serve their patrons as usual.

The only man with common sense in Washington.
