"The Libraries Yes! campaign is one of the most innovative approaches I’ve encountered in place-based advocacy. Using a strategy that emphasized geosocial check-ins and recommendations on Facebook Places, Yelp, Foursquare, and Google Places, the Libraries Yes! campaign built a targeted list of engaged supporters for a library ballot measure in just seven weeks. What is more, the measure passed by over 4:1 on May 15, 2012. The secret behind their success: good old fashioned organizing combined with a geosocial online strategy."
A 2012 ALA Presidential Citation for Innovative International Library Projects. In their press release, the ALA said:
"Urban Office, a creative work environment in the middle of the city that offers temporary office space that can be used not only for business purposes, but also to educate and combat marginalization. [...] Urban Office meets the needs of laptop citizens by providing them with comfortable workspaces, technology, and community."
