Garrison Keillor and Librarians

Garrison Keillor spoke to many in the library field at the annual conference of American Library Association (ALA) in Washington, D.C. this past June 2007. Afterwards he spoke with American Libraries.

He was asked "You don't believe that everything is on the internet?

In part of his reply, he said, "People have limited amounts of time, and if you take a hard look at the amount of time you can spend drifting, trying to get your bearings on the internet, you are grateful for people who can save you time and that's what librarians do -- they save you enormous amounts of time."

Thanks for writing about this! I missed that in the paper. Has anyone read his new book Platoon?
