Those who predicted the death of libraries forgot to consider that in the automated maze of contemporary life, none of us -- neither the experts nor the hopelessly baffled -- can get along without human help. And not just any help -- we need librarians, who won't charge us by the question or roll their eyes, no matter what we ask. Who are they? What do they know? And how quickly can they save us from being buried by the digital age? This book is a romp through the ranks of information professionals and a revelation for readers burned out on the clichés and stereotyping of librarians. Here are bloggers, radicals and visionaries who fuse the tools of the digital age with their love for the written word and the enduring values of free speech, open access, and scout-badge-quality assistance to anyone in need.

The reader's voice and articulation is so good but I swear the reader says liberry and liberian quite often which I find peculiar. I would think she would pronounce these words (if any!) correctly and the same all the time. I try to be generous but I found this somewhat distracting.
