I found this neat quote from Eric Stackhouse, chief librarian at the Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia,Â in an article on the website of the Project for Public Spaces (linked below):
“Librarians have to think about our spaces differently. Before we managed book collections, and today we’re doing much more management of community spaces.”
