The role libraries play in economic development


Libraries are so much more than books. 

We’re not just talking about the pivot to digital content. As any librarian or patron knows, libraries play a vital role within their communities far beyond that of entertainment and education. Yes, libraries are a go-to source for research support, accessible information, and thoughtfully curated content, but in many cities and communities around the world, the library is the de facto community center or social services hub, connecting people in need with resources (both on-site and off-site), and offering shelter, compassion, and connection. Libraries also are key in building citizens’ media literacy, which in turn has a powerful impact on democracy as a whole

THE SCIENCE OF A GOOD NAP | SCIENCE ALERT


For a society constantly trying to over-extend, over-perform, and over-deliver, skipping out on sleep may be seen as the ultimate badge of productivity.

It’s a lifestyle we most associate with the rich and powerful of the world, not to mention the hustle-drunk tech bros of Silicon Valley – but it’s not even a new thing.

Even the infamous inventor Thomas Edison was so consumed by his need to stay productive, he often attempted to sleep just a few hours per night.
