Congratulations to the Philadelphia Flyers in an outstanding come from behind playoff series victory. And the winning seemingly continues as of this posting. It is also a story for the library community to contemplate as well. The public library should likewise never give up the good fight. To continue to provide current services to the best of our abilities despite real challenges and to continue to plan for the evolutionary changes necessary for long-term growth. With a supportive and cheering crowd (our library constituency), the challenge continues. Go HTFL! Go Flyers!
