Summary, etc.:
Museums. Recreation centers. Nature centers. The places around us are made up of incredible resources that aren't the library-- and that libraries shouldn't have to duplicate. But some of those resources are poorly shared; they have costs, or have barriers due to economic, social, or cultural inequality. Davis explores ways that libraries can help their communities use those collections by acting as an effective interface for the public-- without decentralizing library resources or adding to your staff's burden.
