(Thanks to Tom Hennen for the heads-up.)
Link to the Planning Commissioners Journal Planners Web. From this point, you can download a pdf file of "Libraries at the Heart of our Communities".
Excerpt from intro: For too long, libraries have been under-appreciated, often drawing less interest than a new sports arena, shopping complex, office tower, or theater. But the good news is that this has begun to change, as more communities are recognizing the value that having a strong library brings.
Not only do libraries provide valuable services for residents of all ages, incomes, and ethnic backgrounds, but they can also inject a healthy dose of vitality into downtowns, main streets, and neighborhoods.
I just sent the link to this article to Middleton's City Planner.
