Good Ideas for Public Libraries
For me, library advocacy means celebrating achievements, asking tough questions, and sharing good ideas. I’ve tried to do that here. The blog archive has a number of essays, images, references and kudos that celebrate the contributions of American public libraries. Here are the tough questions and good ideas I’ve come up with so far…
- Imagine scarcity – it can save public libraries
- Who is the Vivian Schiller for public libraries?
- Asking the right questions about public libraries
- Running our public libraries like a business
- Libraries nurture citizens, not consumers
- We’ll get by with a little help from our ?
- Tell ‘em about libraries, Roberta Stevens!
- What makes library sources trustworthy?
- Libraries – protect that brand
- Are public libraries glorified babysitting services?
- Hmmm… if libraries remove computers
- What’s my social contract with public libraries?
