According to ‘Parents, Children, Libraries, and Reading,’ 94 percent of parents feel libraries are important for their kids, with 79 percent describing libraries as ‘very important.’ This is especially true of parents of young children (those under 6), some 84 percent of whom describe libraries as ‘very important.’” —”Pew Study: Why Parents Love Libraries”

Librarians are out there making things just a little better one person at a time in the city around you. That is our service. You sleep easier at night knowing that the cops and firefighters are on the job, don’t you feel even a little better knowing librarians are working in your community as well? Nobody is suggesting that we risk our lives in the line of duty, we don’t. We are public servants like they are though and we do interact very directly with the public just as they do. Sometimes we have even more direct and frequent contact with the public than the siren services. In our quiet, anonymous way, we set our shoulder to the wheel of their problems and issues and we leverage all the knowledge and resources we can muster for them. We care, and that is why you should care.
