One of the creators of the infographic below sent it to me saying,
I worked closely with the ALA and IMLS to create this infographic about "Why support your local library?" We are using this to drum up support for volunteers, donations and legislative actions.
I like that it addresses the counter-intuitive notion that during a bad economy, library budgets need to be expanded because we get so much busier. It's a hard sell, even with the statistics to back it up.
Update 9/12/12: a data error was found in the original infographic, and this version has been updated.
