It’s important to keep in mind that legislators, board members, and administrators—like the rest of us—make decisions on the basis of perceptions.

If our advocacy efforts misguidedly reinforce stereotypical perceptions of libraries and librarians, we may well lose ground instead of gaining it.

"We see the library as not being in the book business, but being in the learning business and the exploration business and the expand-your-mind business." ~ Jeff Krull, Allen County (Indiana) Public Library.


Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.~ Clint Eastwood

Library FengShui


 Based on ancient Eastern philosophies, fengshui is a series of guidelines intended to help create a sense of harmony and balance to promote positive energy within your surroundings. The principles can be pretty complex, but I think all of us can agree that we’d love for our libraries to feel more restful and at peace.


A few easy basics for bringing a little fengshui to your library — make sure your back isn't facing the door so you can accept positive energy. Keep your desk neat and tidy and introduce an energizing color like purple. While this may seem surprising, the color black is great for careers and money and can also help promote creativity. Don't forget flowers or houseplants, and include a few personal mementos to connect you to those you love, which will promote an energized, focused mindset while working.
