“Community Reference: Making Libraries Indispensable in a New Way.” 

American Libraries (May/June 2012).

Conferring about community concerns

How can we truly demonstrate our value to our communities beyond our physical/virtual space, programming, outreach, and materials?

Jamie LaRue, library director for Douglas County (Colo.) Libraries (DCL), asked his librarians this question. LaRue envisions a future where the librarian and the library are a central hub of the community. Librarians have the power to change lives and build community—but to do this, we have to leave our desks, leave our buildings, and show the community what a powerful tool we are.
