On the Commons, an organization that has sparked collaborations, showcased commons-based solutions at the community and national level, developed approaches of how to share our commons equitably and given inspiration to commons activists to make a difference in their communities— and the world, has published a nice, in-depth article about the importance of the public library. You can read the article at http://www.onthecommons.org/all-hail-public-library.
What do you think? Do you agree? What are the services a library provides that need to be prioritized in our Strategic Plan? We are currently working on our “Outcomes” or “goals” that will become an important part of our Strategic Plan. In the coming weeks, I will be posting a sampling of Outcomes that we are looking at, and ask you to contribute your own thoughts on what Outcomes the library should be focusing on in the months and years to come.
