Should libraries stick to books?

Should libraries stick to books? | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Councillor Mike Del Grande, the city's budget chief, questions whether the library should be in the business of movies and non-English materials.

 

Being a focal point for the community is precisely the right role, said Councillor Sarah Doucette, a library board member. She shook her head when Del Grande’s recorded comments were played back to her. “I guess it depends what you think a library is,” she said. “A library is no longer a room full of books. It’s the computers where people can come to get jobs, improve their education. Some of the videos are how-to videos. We’ve got the newspapers, we’ve got magazines. We’re working to get more e-books.”

Best Children's Books of 2011

Best Children's Books of 2011 | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Compiling our best-books-of-the-year lists is a process that is both exciting and heartbreaking. Exciting, because I get to steep myself in the year's great books, and heartbreaking, because I have to pick favorites. After considerable solitary soul-searching and spirited back-and-forth with our corps of reviewers, I am pleased to present our Best Books for Children. Here you will find books that will thrill, tickle, stimulate, soothe and enlighten kids from the very youngest to early teens. There are heartfelt explorations of the natural world and loving celebrations of the closeness of family, ruminative picture books and adventures to get the blood pounding. And three, count them, three novels featuring mice.

Tiny Public Library in Kansas Uses Digital Projects to Stay Relevant

Joan Weaver and Rosetta Graff aren’t exactly reinventing the small town public library, just . . . well, reinterpreting it. The Kinsley Public Library in Kinsley, which, with a population of roughly 1,450, is the largest town in Edwards County, in wheat-growing central Kansas. Before the Internet, the public library was the source of books and information. Now, it’s one of many sources. So, like a company rewriting its business model in changing times, the library, especially the small library, also must adapt to remain relevant.
