A closer look at a new book

Transforming libraries, building communities : the community-centered library
Julie Biando Edwards, Melissa S. Robinson, Kelley Rae Unger

Edwards, Robinson, and Unger characterize the benefits of collaboration as helping to build human and social capital. They not that resilient community centered librarians often find themselves in a position to create partnerships that extend their sphere of influence, recognizing that all are assets-individuals and partner agencies from city planners to union members. This book is a rich and thoughtful compilation of past achievements, contemporary successes, and future pathways that lodge the public library as a societal anchor and key to the engagement of people in the life of their communities. Transforming Libraries, Building Communities argues that focusing on innovative and responsive services and programs is the best way for the public library to reposition itself as an active center for a vibrant community. Although accessing information will always be at the heart of what library patrons do, the role of librarians has evolved. Libraries create community and also mini-communities-everything from book groups to writing circles to new citizen groups to linguistic and ethnic communities. These mini-communities provide fellowship and foster relationships among group members while helping the larger community recognize and learn how the mini-communities enrich the larger.
