I realized today I hadn't posted in a while. I've just been too busy with work, which is always unpleasant. Work should never get in the way of one's blogging.
But a couple of weeks ago I noticed something I meant to post about, so here it is. An article from the Library Journal on "What Boomer's Want" listed all sorts of things libraries can do for boomers. Apparently, librarians can do all things for all people. Among other things, the article claims that "successful library intervention and outreach to single boomer women may spare them from impoverished senior years."
That's certainly a grand claim. I just can't figure out why anyone would believe it. What I'd like to know is, if librarians are so great at saving people from poverty, why are they so unsuccessful at raising their own salaries?
