Tame The Web: Libraries and Technology: Gwinnett County PL Board Fires Director, Patrons Enraged
This was a huge deal on the news here last night. I saw pretty long reports on two different newscasts. And yes, one opened with a crack about libraries usually being quiet. I can't find links to video of either report but there are some pictures on the AJC site.
I don't live in that area or know too much about the library system other than Michael Casey (who posted a link to a different news article) works there. But it does seem kinda weird that you can go from being named library of the year to having this situation. Outside of the recent DVD controversy, is there really that much of a disconnect between the services provided by the library system and what the community wants?
Video of a WSB-TV news story is now available on AJC.com. You'll (probably) need to register and (definitely) watch an ad before viewing.
