Libraries Building Communities

The State Library of Victoria has produced some very interesting looking research into the role that public libraries play in society. The reports cover such ground as the value libraries bring to communities, who uses libraries and who doesn't, example of best practices and more. I haven't had a good read yet but there looks to be some very interesting stuff.

Read all about it and download the reports from their web site: Libraries Building Communities
