Great article to send to your planning commissioner

It’s always great when we see other professions that have an impact on our success writing about libraries and their worth. Hence, this article by Wayne Senville in The Planning Commissioner’s Journal (summer issue) about libraries as “economic engines” of downtowns and neighborhoods.
One quote:
Libraries at the Heart Our Communities
“There’s been a dramatic change in the mission of libraries across the country. No longer just static repositories of books and reference materials, libraries are increasingly serving as the hub of their communities, providing a broad range of services and activities. They are also becoming important ‘economic engines’ of downtowns and neighborhood districts…”
[Note: You’re supposed to be able to download a free copy but it’s not working right now. You know librarians and can probably find a copy, right!?)
