Summary
While libraries deliver a vital public service within diverse communities, they are often invisible in the community development process initiated by civic planners, activists, and local government officials. Award-winning librarian, educator, author, and activist, Kathleen de la Pena McCook challenges librarians everywhere to get involved early by demanding a place at the community planning and development table. Describing the experiences and insights of librarians who have blazed trails of community involvement and development around the country, McCook outlines practical ways to: Become involved in policy making early and build a grassroots campaign; Connect with powerful partners in the community visioning process; Promote the tangible strengths and assets of the library
