Joint Libraries: Models That Work: Combining Town and Gown
I found the history chapter very interesting. Florida and California have led the way in forming more joint-use libraries than other states and have the most success stories to boast. For the most part, joint-use libraries started gaining popularity when innovative leaders would dream about how to offer more services to their respective user groups without I checked this book out to gain knowledge of what joint-use libraries are, what they offer the communities they serve, and how they function.
For the most part, joint-use libraries started gaining popularity when innovative leaders would dream about how to offer more services to their respective user groups without added costs associated with expanded library services. Nowadays joint-use library agreements seem to come about out of a basic need to cut costs rather than expand services. There are many obstacles involved in bringing about a joint-use library.
This book stresses the number one need being a high level of communication and realistic expectations from the leaders of the two organizations coming together for the shared cause. Due to the book's academic tone, it will be of primary interest to those currently undergoing a possible joint-use project. There is very little for a staff person who finds themselves working in a joint-use library to take away.
