Judith Krug in the New York Times

Following up on my last post, the New York Times published a lovely editorial appreciation of Judith Krug. Here is an excerpt:

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a librarian is a person who specializes “in the care or management of a library.” That definition is far too mechanical. It leaves out the larger role librarians play in our democracy, facilitating access to information and ideas and promoting and protecting a precious First Amendment right: the freedom to read.
