Libraries Will Survive!

Everyone knows times are tough. Budget cuts and belt-tightening are commonplace.

The library has felt the pinch too, but we know we'll carry on and continue to offer the best possible service to our patrons.

Humor often helps us through the hard times, so we'd like to share this video, inspired by the 1978 disco hit "I Will Survive," made by and featuring CRRL staff.

You can also check out this longer version, which begins with a send-up of a typically hectic day in the life of a professional librarian.
