Dallas libraries already do a lot of amazing things that go well beyond loaning books. The perpetually under-funded system has a crack reference staff, hosts all kinds of training and seminars and public forums, and, oh yeah, is free to users. Dallas libraries want to do more, but that’s where the “perpetually under-funded” part comes in.
Today, the city announced an effort to do something about that. Council member Ann Margolin and Atmos Energy’s Sandra Doyle are leading a team to recruit corporate partners to help fund several needs at the library. It’s called, appropriately enough, Corporate Partners for the Dallas Public Library.”
