In Mary Ellen Quinn’s column in the March American Libraries, the magazine of the American Library Association, opens with a review of Berkshire’s Heart of the Community: The Libraries We Love. After a three-paragraph description of the book, she writes:
The loving attention that went into this beautifully designed book is evident on each page. Text describing each library’s history and current activities is accompanied by wonderful photographs, nearly all of them, aside from the historical ones, in color. We’ve all heard rumors of the death of the library as an actual space, but this valentine to libraries makes it hard to imagine a virtual substitute.
