I just heard a student "peer mentor" saying this to the students on his tour.
I like it! I am a pretty pessimistic person in some ways and I've more or less accepted that libraries are on the way out. So it's nice to hear something like that.
Actually, one nice thing about working in a library is that everybody in the surrounding organisation values what you do. There was a front page story in the student newspaper recently decrying a decline in staff numbers over the last few years. It's a hell of a lot better than, "I'd sack the lof 'em if it was up to me..."
