    One of the most compelling sentences in the article is this:

    “Libraries have more meeting rooms than the nation’s conference centers, convention facilities and auditoriums combined.”

    Given the number of community organizations who need meeting spaces, I don’t think libraries are doing enough to advertise the availability of these rooms. Getting these groups into the library is one of the surest ways of making long-term connections with the heart of the community, and driving home the unique way that tax dollars are paid back by libraries.
