Public Libraries Daring to Be Different–cover story in Public Management Magazine

Public libraries are definitely supporting community initiatives in new and creative ways. Nine public library innovation grants show how libraries provide services that are central to economic growth, e-government, and workforce development.

    This article was amazing, the one library however that really stood out to me was the Pendleton, Oregon: Wired for Safety article. The idea of a library partnering with a police department in a high crime community is brilliant. Through this partnership the library can promote itself and materials to the community while at the same time having the safety in which to operate. This imaginative partnership helps to build community by making the community safer and more knowledgable at the same time. This partnership also helps to educate those members of the community that otherwise would have fallen to the wayside. Again an awesome partnership between the library and community.
