Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, April 4, 2014 11:15 AM

While I scooped this article when it first appeared in October of 2013, I think it bears repeating. Neil Gaiman speaks so eloquently about the importance of libraries. You could mine this article for excellent sound bites to use every time somebody says, "Why do we need libraries? We have the Internet!" Share with your school community and keep it in your back pocket when you have to justify yourself to the budget people (and you know you will...)

This is a great article with no easy way to summarize. Reading and daydreaming lead to creativity does not do it justice.
