    @michael I loved what you said in the lecture about library work sharing aspects with social work. Personally, the reason I want to get into librarianship is because of people and the desire to have a career where I could help people. It seems clear to me that in order for someone to improve their literacy skills or research a subject, they first need to have their basic needs met. Of course we do need to realize how much to take on in that world but if libraries truly are the living room of the community (as I think they should be) then part of that is dealing with some of those other community needs as well. The Community Closet project reminds me of the Free Store in San Francisco in the 1960s. Really cool idea. Thanks!
