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.

New Halifax library: ‘Are you ready to fall in love?’ asks mayor

New Halifax library: ‘Are you ready to fall in love?’ asks mayor | Libraries in Demand | Scoop.it
It’s a library where whispers aren’t required.

Certainly not on opening day, as Halifax celebrated its highly anticipated, new $57.6-million public library with music, balloons, juggling acts and a mass ribbon cutting ceremony on Spring Garden Road.

And apparently — here at the Halifax Central Library — not ever.

“As you walk through the library, you’ll notice the openings from floor to floor are staggered,” says Asa Kachan, CEO and chief librarian for Halifax Public Libraries.
