A lot of people have the misconception that librarians are all about books…only books, all the time. Not true…as a librarian, I am all about information…books are just one way to get information to the masses…and in the case of new fiction, one of the only ways (unless you want to throw in electronic reading devices, but that’s another topic).
Today, I’d like to mention the environment…specifically, the in-depth reporting that CNN’s Anderson Cooper is doing in the series Planet In Peril, airing this weekend on CNN, check your local listings. I encourage anybody who reads, eats, breathes or lives on this planet to visit the companion website, watch the special report, and contemplate the consequences the current environmental crisis will have on not just future generations, but the next few years of this one.
Planet in Peril: Battle Lines will run Saturday and Sunday night, 8pm-10pm EST on CNN.
