When the heart of things closes, community reactions to times of no libraries

Oregon has the unenviable record of having three county libraries that have closed: Jackson(2007), Josephine (2007), and Hood River (2010). All three have now reopened, under much different funding models. Staff from these libraries detail in this presentation how their libraries came to close, how the communities responded, and how they reopened. Stories touch on politics, government, library funding, community support, and much more.
