Libraries are all about access to information, so this seems an appropriate place to point you to the Virginia Coalition for Open Government's call for nominations for their Freedom of Information awards.

Librarians are always eager to help people.  That’s what we do.  But the secret is out. Hundreds of people stop by our busy reference desks every day, and knowing that you’ll get the personal attention you’d like at a time set aside for you sometimes works best with an appointment.  We encourage you to try out our special one-on-one offerings.  Give us a call.  If another time fits better for you, just ask.  Perhaps we can accommodate.  We’re here for you.

Proponents of each communication approach have what seem to be ironclad arguments as to why their way is the best.

This author’s writing is sparse but beautiful, much like the landscape of her Wyoming homeland. In the Skylark series, which begins with Newbery Award-winner Sarah, Plain and Tall, we watch as a new family is formed and grows from people who were separated in their loneliness. Beyond the Skylark series, she has written many other picture books and novels for young people.
