Libraries aren’t just about lending good stories. They’re about telling them.

As a partner to many of the world’s most successful libraries, we’re pleased to hear, and more importantly, share stories and thoughtful perspectives about the exceptional work libraries are doing today. We hope some of these posts will spark new ideas, inspire you to try a new community program, or expand the services you offer on campus.
