Libraries as Community Places

   April 28th, 2007 Brian Herzog

Project Public Spaces logoA post this week to the Maine Libraries listserv highlighted Project Public Spaces, and their recent newsletter - it was all about libraries.

Mainly, the theme is this: libraries are natural community gathering spaces, and we should embrace and emphasize this. If we want to play an important role in our communities, we should act accordingly.

A partial table of contents is below, and the articles are really worth reading to get ideas:

community, community place, community space, community spaces, libraries, libraries as place, libraries matter, library, pps, project for public space, project for public spaces, public libraries, public library, sense of place
