We Love the Presidential Endorsement of Our Library!

During President Obama’s visit to UNC Chapel Hill, we loved hearing what we felt was a Presidential endorsement of the importance of libraries.  As you can hear towards the end of this Youtube clip (around the 1:20 mark), the President mentions that he’s proud of all the Tar Heel students for their hard work as they study for their degrees and “for the long hours in the library, I hope!”

Thank you Mr. President!
