Give back to libraries and individuals in need

My colleague at WJ wrote this wonderful piece about libraries giving back during the winter holidays.  Of course the image on the WJ homepage is of two WJ staffers in New Orleans volunteering during a Libraries Build Communities event, which I’m sure their sweaty faces can attest was in weather a lot hotter than most winter months, the thought of helping when disaster strikes is the same.  Libraries as institutions already do so much for their communities, but during this month where needs are intensified due to weather, family stress, loneliness, poverty, homelessness, and general bad luck, libraries can play an even larger role in being a positive force in their communities.
