Check Out the New Library
In this month's issue of Public Management magazine, the International City/County Management Association takes a deep look at the public library as a highly relevant place that contributes in important ways to community well-being. The article, Check Out the New Library, features two early adopters of the Edge Initiative - Miami Public Library, OK, and Sacramento Public Library, CA.
The article outlines the variety of roles of today's library and five ways for managers to build effective working partnerships with library directors. It also showcases how a manager's "openness to engage the library demonstrates a willingness to take a holistic approach to community problem solving."
