i'd love to hear from school districts with great relationships with their public library.
Kristen McCloskey's comment, March 15, 2013 10:01 AM
Proud to say our high school library offers many of these services. We need to work much more on bridging the gap with the community.

Instagram says it now has the right to sell your photos

Instagram says it now has the right to sell your photos | Libraries, Leadership and Foresight. | Scoop.it
