What Libraries Offer to Communities Pursuing Revitalization: IMLS

The Local Initiatives Support Corporation was cited as a potential library partner in A Place at the Table: Participating in Community Building ALA, 2000, pp. 8-9.

and today a new IMLS LISC  report, Museums, Libraries and Comprehensive Initiatives: A First Look at Emerging Experience,  includes, “What Museums and Libraries Offer to Communities Pursuing Revitalization”.

Museums and libraries play important and traditional societal roles that alone justify their long-standing community support. But as museum and library leaderships increasingly have embraced broader conceptions of these roles, they have been brought more explicitly into the community revitalization frame. One job of this paper is to help community leaders understand just how helpful these institutions can be to them.Museums and libraries play important and traditional societal roles that alone justify their long-standing community support.

The full report (PDF) is available on the IMLS website and through LISC’s Institute for Comprehensive Community Development.
