Local and Libraries

Posted on Monday, August 20, 2007 by No comments yet

Municipal libraries are a cornerstone of local America.  While they’ve been hit hard by budget cuts in many locales, they continue to play vital roles.  So I was pleased to see Front Porch Forum treated well today by Charles at Dewey and Main.

Many small town librarians participate on the FPF neighborhood forums in their towns.  They post announcements about programs and new books, as well as address specific issues that come up in the various neighborhoods.  And, I would guess, they learn a bit about what’s going on around town and use that information to shape what they provide.
