The role of libraries
Libraries today are about much more than lending books. We talk with Maine library leaders about the rapidly expanding role of libraries, especially with demand for digital services and access to technology. And we learn about the challenges librarians face in these changing times, from being more inclusive to navigating political controversies to making the most of limited budgets.
