An informal survey posted online about the
library system, Little doubt –
people love libraries
reminded me how quintessentially “heart of community” are our libraries. Cincinnati
Talk about an institution that is constantly evolving, accommodating new technology, changing patron interests and needs, and yet is still as vibrant and necessary as ever.
I did a bit of looking around and noticed that other libraries and/or library systems are or have solicited input from patrons about why they “love their library.” In fact, the Texas Library Association has “65 Reasons to Love your Library -- A Resource Kit for Texas Libraries.”
Whether a local community library, a university research library or a state-level library tell us why do you love your library?

+ Libraries are AWESOME -- are you taking advantage of all that your library (and the library in a locale you are researching) have to offer?
