Developing Community Led Public Libraries Book Review:

This important book examines the potential for a new community led service model in public libraries. Using theoretical approaches to working with socially excluded community members, with a direct application of those approaches in Canadian public libraries, the authors offer a powerful and persuasive case for adopting the community led approach in libraries worldwide. The book showcases good practice and outlines the challenges to community development work. With public libraries facing budget cuts, this book offers an alternative way forward based on a community led approach to developing needs based library services. This book makes a unique contribution to public library thinking and policy, synthesising the outcomes of research and best practice at the cutting edge of library service delivery, and will be essential reading for all those researching and working in the public library sector.

Corporate Social Responsibility and Public Libraries Book Review:

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been on the agenda in India for quite some time. The private sector is generally more active in this area than the Governmental and public sector; and the situation is slowly changing. The concept of CSR is finally coming out of the purview of ‘doing social good’ and is fast becoming a ‘business necessity’. This approach to CSR is gaining ground and many corporate houses are realizing the benefits they get in business by extending help to their workers, local community and society at large. There are many corporate companies and voluntary foundations in India who are doing commendable work in education, health, environment and energy under CSR. CSR can also be extended to public libraries, because public libraries are considered as ‘social institutions’ providing basic information for social, economic and cultural development of citizens; and to sustain lifelong learning for students. Public libraries play a vital role in disseminating existing knowledge and promote the creation of new knowledge.
