LIFE WITH KIDS: Halifax Central Library a magnificent wonderland

LIFE WITH KIDS: Halifax Central Library a magnificent wonderland | Libraries in Demand | Scoop.it
After a handful of visits, my family is thoroughly in love with the Halifax Central Library.
It has been open for a month now, so perhaps there have been enough superlatives thrown at the city’s newest marvel. But it’s worth the hype. It’s already one of the best indoor spaces for families in Halifax.
When you factor in the cost — free — it rises to the top of the list.

Friends of the Libraries: Libraries provide bang for your buck

Friends of the Libraries: Libraries provide bang for your buck | Libraries in Demand | Scoop.it
Some years ago, I was talking to a city official about the need to expand our library space in Costa Mesa. I was told that libraries didn't produce money, so it was hard to get the public to invest in a bond issue. I wish I had known then what I have since learned: that libraries do bring a strong return on investment to the community.
