Ferguson Is Another Reason To Love Libraries And Librarians

In case you missed it, this may be the most heartwarming story to come out of the Ferguson protests. The Ferguson, Missouri public library has stayed open in the midst of the violent protests around it because its librarian felt it important to be there for the community. As a result, there has been an outpouring of support and donations from all over.

From NPR:
The Ferguson Public Library is just a block away from the center of demonstrations at the Ferguson Police Department. As we've reported, when violent protests this week led to the burning of more than a dozen businesses and the uncertainty caused schools to close, the library stayed open.
