Sue asked some great questions. One of them got me to say something I hadn't prepared ahead of time: that in an age of abundance of literature, not scarcity, libraries are not gatekeepers. We are gardeners, working to grow the fresh local produce of creators. The more I think about that image, the more I like it.
Thanks to AL Live's Dan Freeman, Sue, and Scott (EBSCO was the sponsor of the show) for the opportunity.
