Jaeger, Paul T., Ursula Gorham, John Carlo Bertot, and Lindsay C. Sarin. Public Libraries, Public Policies, and Political Processes: Serving and Transforming Communities in Times of Economic and Political Constraint. Rowman & Littlefield, 2014.

Description
The main message of this book is that there is a pressing need for public librarians and other supporters of public libraries to be:

  *   Aware of the political process and its implications for libraries;
  *   Attuned to the interrelationships between policy and politics; and
  *   Engaged in the policy process to articulate the need for policies that support public libraries.
By offering data and real world examples, the authors present proposals for professional, policy-making, and political strategies that can strengthen the public library and its ability to meet the needs of individuals and communities.
