Orioles to Play to an Empty Stadium on Wednesday, But Libraries Stay Open
I saw articles this morning talking about libraries in Baltimore staying open through the protests that have been taking place. While not directly related to our course per say, I found them interesting for the manner in which they discuss the library. They have been de facto places of refuge from the description the article gives, something which struck me as being a rare characteristic. In my perception such distinction was reserved for churches or similar religious buildings, but here we have libraries being held up as the same type of saving institution.
I would like to see these librarians acknowledged for their dedication to their institution and their community. The phrase above and beyond gets tossed around quite a bit, but truly it applies here to these folks.
