This highly informative infographic put together by Masters in Education and ObizMedia, is analyzing the role of a library and a librarian in our life.
For many people librarians have the reputation for being old book worms, and libraries are same-old-places that never change. This great infographic puts a lot of new light on the topic. It actually changes the whole perspective.
Each day in US libraries more items are circulated than on Amazon. Another fact from US: public library cardholders outnumber registered Amazon customers by 5 to 1. All the information in the infographic is extremely convincing, as it uncovers how much work librarians have to do to let us read books for free.
Maybe it’s good to jump in to the library you’re passing every day on the way to your grocery shop, and finally get the library card?
