Salute to the librarians

Libraries are bastions of knowledge, where everyone who wants to have
free access to various sources of information. At the library we can
both educate and entertain ourself. Libraries are one of the few places
where everyone has free access to both the site and its content of
knowledge, entertainment and social meetings. We may even visit a
library for other reasons than educational or for entertainment. Here
you can sit down and rest, enjoy the warmth on a cool day or visit the
rest room.
Libraries are one of our society’s most important places. It is a place
that does not require financial transactions from the visitors. You are
welcome to the library without the visit being in any connection to your
personal finances or income. It is a place based on the idea of a joint
ownership, where we borrow and return, were we can read, meet, chat,
study or play a game of chess.
It is an institution and a profession worth protecting and defending.
But this task of maintaining an alternative to an increasingly
commercialized society should not only be on libraries and librarians.
It should also be a task for contemporary art and for the contemporary
artist. We should all be involved in caring for the community and fight
for democracy and freedom.

Salute to the librarians!
