On the 8th day of Christmas my library gave to me:
I is for: images; imagination; inclusion; individual study; information; information commons; information literacy; information services; innovation; inspiration; inter-library loans (borrowing things from other libraries); and the internet.
Previously, libraries gave to me:
T is for: trusted places, teaching (support for teachers /schools), teaching (librarians teaching) and teenage reading;
C is for: crime fiction community memory, careers information, help with my CV, and classics;
U is for: the unexpected, support during unemployment, universality (open for all) and uplifting experiences;
D is for: discovery, democracy and digital literacy;
O is for: open for all, opportunity, online resources and outreach;
R is for: reading, reading groups, recommendations, research and relaxation;
P is for: personal development, political literacy, power and photocopying.
With thanks to the excellent LibraryAtoZ.org for the images and concept. Reused under CCBY
