CNN did a feature on the increased use of public libraries during economic downtimes. I know this comes as a huge shock to all of the libraries and librarians faced with an ever increasing set of patrons and requests. (I’d say demands but that has negative connotations and many of the patrons are polite.)

But they featured a very special library
: Lebanon Public Library where the Head of Reference (one Sibling-the-Elder) set up a new Business Collection to encourage small businesses in her town.
