I am reading Small Acts of Resistance How Courage, Tenacity, and Ingenuity Can Change the World by Steve Crenshaw and John Jackson. There is a foreword by Vaclav Havel. It is about how small things can make big changes. Part of this is about group action. When groups of people decide to do little things like stop watching the state news during the dinner hour or not follow dress codes it makes a difference.
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
It is National Library Week on April 14 through April 20, 2013.
