Marketing Libraries Journal, volume 1, issue 1, pages 49-59.
Abstract: What is the role of the public library in communities? Does it go beyond
books, databases, and learning resources? How can libraries add value
to communities, enhancing quality of life for citizens, young and old?
Art is essential for expressing cultural identity and promoting the
growth of ideas. Plano Public Library embraces art within its
organizational vision, utilizing exhibits and participatory art.
Engaging the community in art activities provides opportunities for
citizens to discover the breadth of services and programs available at
the library. The Art in the Library program enhances the livability of
Plano and the quality of life for its citizens.
