We've heard this in various versions especially this past half year when Federal Funding for libraries in America is under attack. This article (click on the graphic above) articulates 4 core concerns of library users that are well worth reviewing.

  1. A Good Range of Books - including free access to various ebooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and newspapers!
  2. Longer Opening Hours -after work/school or during the weekend.
  3. Core Library Service for Free - access to information but also to the library’s facility (use entices new library patrons)
  4. Help from Knowledgeable Librarians - representing the human Google of your local community. You have THAT covered right?
