Share this with your local politicians

An excellent article in the current issue of Governing magazine titled "Revolution in the Stacks." It's an upbeat, non-condescending look at the ways public libraries are attracting teens. There is a heavy emphasis on the terrific things going on at the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, but other libraries are also included.

This would be a very effective tool to open a conversation with your mayor, county officials, or school board about the role of libraries in the new environment.
