Vancouver’s Commonweal

In North America it is Canada’s decided, tenacious commonweal that sets it apart. We look after one another more often than not, and less out of zeal than out of habit and good sense.

A city’s public library is a testament to its commonweal.

I was delighted but not surprised, then, when I read that Vancouver’s public library had been named the world’s best city library (tied with the Bibliothèques Montréal), ranking very high in digital / social media resources as well as in physical spaces, collections, and services.

The library has a good twitter feed.
