Libraries have always connected people to information. In the digital age, they've become increasingly important as a place for people to connect with other people in their community.
ALA President @loidagarciafebo is in Massachusetts today and tomorrow visiting public, academic, and school libraries to spread the word about how Libraries = Strong Communities. Follow along at #LibrariesStrong, and tell us how your library makes the community stronger.
