Libraries Can Help

Libraries help their communities in numerous ways every day.  At least they should. Good libraries do. There are the standard ways you might think of: promoting early literacy for children, providing meeting room space for organizations and businesses, loaning resources that people don’t have to buy. . .  But there are also other, probably even more important ways libraries and librarians can help communities and the people who live in them.

And one of the best ways is described in the article Whole Person Librarianship. Librarians and social workers have much in common, and can work together to serve the needs of our patrons. Think about it!

    In a time when people need services more often, this would be a great way to reach them with a neighborhood point of contact.
