Coralville Public Library, Part 5

“The crux of librarianship to me is helping people. I think most librarians are in this profession because we enjoy helping people and making a real, huge difference in people’s lives. But also, we’re here to make the democratic society work. We help level the playing field between those who can afford access to certain things and those who cannot afford as much. What we provide access to might be shifting a little, but the idea is the same.”

Ellen Hampe Alexander, Assistant Director & Reference Services Coordinator, Coralville Public Library
