Magic

Those of us who inhabit the library world on a day-to-day basis sometimes need to look at what we do in a fresh light.

When we run a search on ReferenceUSA and within 30 seconds pull up a list of the 46 Spokane County female-owned manufacturing businesses without websites, well, that's all in a day's work for us. No biggie. But to the public that is straight up, hardcore magic. That's the equivalent of pulling four doves out of a handkerchief and having them explode into $100 bills.

The moral? Don't let our complacency with what we do color how the public views what we do.
