More with less

“Doing more with less is a bad joke on people who have made a living making something from nothing.

Libraries and librarians need to stop saying we can do more with less. We can’t. We can do less with less. Our communities are continually demanding more from us – more formats for content, more space for things like games, meetings, and creating both digital and physical things.

At the same time libraries are also getting less – less financial support, less public opinion support, less consideration, less support and partnership from big publishers and producers, and chosen less often to partner with other organizations and businesses.( Madam Librarian )

Couldn’t agree more. Squeezing libraries and all public service is denial that people are working very hard and have reached their limit.
