    Join the Library Family: Make a Membership Gift. Government funding pays only a portion of the Library's operating expenses. Membership with the Friends of the Library group is a great way to support NYPL's free and vital services including literacy training, internet access, and job search resources. Public libraries are worth fighting for, and this book is my way of fighting. During the Vietnam War, while I was in college, I photographed a particularly tense standoff between an angry group of antiwar activists and a group of local riot squad policemen.

    The Intellectual Freedom Blog’s purpose is to educate and encourage discussions about intellectual freedom principles and promote the value of libraries, librarians, and professional membership in the American Library Association (ALA). The blog is managed and edited by staff of ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) to raise awareness of time-sensitive news, issues in the field. I just finished the first book, but I remember thinking to myself about a quarter of the way through, “this is like Monty Python, in text!” I love how silly and outrageous this book is. I’ve been reading a lot of “serious” fiction lately, and I think HHGG was exactly what my brain needed to lighten up a bit.

    The Open Book Publishers' Library Membership Programme supports our award-winning Open Access monograph publishing programme. By joining the Programme for an annual fee of £/$/€, libraries and their users both support and benefit from OA publishing.   FYI I have a out-of-state membership with the Houston Public Library and with my hometown library, using both library's Overdrive collections. If you finish listening to an Overdrive audio book early, you can return it early and check-out another book.
