Sirsi/Dynix Newsletter on Building Communities

I think this was supposed to go out a bit earlier, but SirsiDynix has published the latest issue of Upstream. I’m excited about this one because I helped pick the theme and suggested a few librarians to send the question. The issue deals with examples of community building.
You can download your copy here. The question posed was:

“What is the best example of libraries building communities that you have come across or experienced? How will libraries in the future be empowered to play even a greater role in their communities?”

Thanks to the 9 other librarians whpo provided answers. And a personal thanks to Thomas A. Tarantowicz for answering questions about the Brentwood Public Library, here on Long Island.
