Libraries in Community Systems
What is the value of a library to its community? What is its function within local networks & social-ecological systems?
This collaboration between Northern New York Library Network, four state libraries and eight native nation and pueblo governments is ongoing through 2024.
Rural Libraries & Social Wellbeing
We ask: In what ways are libraries a component of social wellbeing in isolated rural communities? How do they do it?
In this field and quantitative research we learned that libraries facilitate belonging, mutualism, and self-determination, helping residents experience" the good life" on their own terms.
