Libraries That Matter | Project for Public Spaces | The Slothful Cybrarian |

By Cynthia Nikitin and Josh Jackson libraries serve as centers of discovery and communication–places where people gather and where information comes alive through teaching and personal interaction. Indeed, to distinguish themselves in a world where Google is well on its way to digitally scanning most of the books ever written, libraries are learning to take advantage of the simple fact that they are centrally located in almost every community. In other words, libraries now see success being linked to their role as public places and destinations.

"We've just started publishing posts today for 2013 - and today's post may be less relevant to Australian TLs but if you have a little scroll through the previous content you'll see the sort of things that we normally  blog about and you may like to follow.  The posts are written by a variety of Services to Schools staff

primarily Library Advisers who work with schools around NZ to develop their library programmes and services".
