Investment in a New Year

http://www.ohio.com/editorial/commentary/112365744.html
"...we have to keep investing, so that we survive the downturn and emerge ready to thrive in the good times."

But let us invest in what is effective. Let us re-evaluate all current practices, and discuss alternative ways of thinking and working together.

"Now is the time to come together for the future ... and to make decisions wisely so that those who come after us can enjoy, just as we did ..."

Let us come together with some shared visions, and missions for our work. Let us work toward a common goal.

In the work of children's librarians, our shared goal is to effectively implement Every Child Ready to Read -- to educate and support caregivers and youth in the ways of loving to read and learn together.
