More and more librarians and library-lovers are realizing that they have a lot in common with Mozilla. While some people think Mozilla is just a tech company that makes Firefox, these savvy "Mozillarians" know that they’re more than that: Mozilla is a global community of people who believe that openness, innovation, and opportunity are key to the continued health of the Internet.
Mozilla creates initiatives like Webmaker and drives the Hive Learning Networks — both focused on advancing web literacy, connected learning, and digital skills. These programs spark creativity and innovation, as well as build tools, curricula, and a community of people dedicated to helping others. Initiatives that enable citizens to develop 21st-century skills, become creators and shapers of the web, explore interests and opportunities, and develop themselves and their communities. Which kinda sounds like, well, what librarians do :)
