heart “We’d hit the newspaper offices, the chamber of commerce, city hall, and Main Street for an introduction to the economics, politics, and stresses of a town. The visit to the public library revealed its heart and soul.

Yup. I agree with everything in this article.  It’s beautifully written, and sums up what libraries should really be about. “There are three areas where libraries function as vibrant centers of America’s towns: technology, education, and community.”

Go read it. Is your library doing these things for your community? If not, why not?
