National Public Radio has placed public libraries in the spotlight with a special series during August, "Keys To The Whole World: American Public Libraries." The stories cover a wide range of topics including Andrew Carnegie's legacy, the new Digital Public Library of America, and the challenges libraries face to secure funding and provide equitable access to e-books and digital content.
Several stories point to the innovative ways that libraries are evolving to meet the needs of their individual communities. Remarks from ALA President Barbara Stripling are featured in one such story, "Beyond Books: Libraries Lend Fishing Poles, Pans And People."
