“Libraries are and will remain critical partners in ensuring sustainable local development, according to a new research report by the Urban Libraries Council”–American Libraries blog

The purpose of Partners for the Future: Public Libraries and Local Governments Creating Sustainable Communities “is to qualify the public library as a vehicle for sustainability and to communicate the actions local governments and libraries are taking together to create sustainable communities,” ULC said. The report offers numerous examples of how public libraries are partnering with local governments to achieve the “triple bottom line” of sustainable development: economic vitality, environmental quality, and social equity.
