The Future of our Library Community
Libraries in northeast
School and academic libraries are valued by their students, faculty, and administrators. Staff in these libraries have the professional skills to help students perform well academically, develop critical thinking skills, and grow into lifelong learners. Through membership in the regional system, special libraries help extend the reach of their sponsoring organizations. They share information and expertise about specialized topics with the wider community.
The region’s public libraries are strong and vital hubs in their communities, and a source of great civic pride. People of all ages, locations, and socio-economic backgrounds actively make use of public library services. Public libraries are in tune with changing needs in their communities and respond with services and programming that consistently satisfy and delight the people who use them.
The region is abuzz about libraries.--Approved by the ALS Board on February 14, 2013.
