The recession is not supposed to hit Manitoba as hard as rest of Canada, and, in comparison to the United States, the recession in Canada (for those who may have actually heard journalists or politicians use the ‘R’ word or even the word ‘downturn’ or perhaps the phrase ‘lower growth’) is supposed to be nowhere near as dramatic.   But speaking of something that is dramatic, I enjoyed this NBC news clip of Libraries Offer Free Relief from Tough Times that my American colleague, Michael Sauers, posted to his blog.  As as Librarian I spend a good deal of time promoting my Library and the need for Libraries in general, but I’m glad big news media is finally helping to promote the virtues of Libraries.  Looking back on my previous post Historic ‘Blockbuster’ Store Offers Glimpse Of How Movies Were Rented In The Past, it does seem like there’s less opportunity to aim such satire at Libraries.  However, as big news media gets a hold of this and mixes the merits of Libraries in to a two and a half minute soundbite, there’s something that makes a much bigger and better blockbuster.
