“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

— Margaret Mead

Libraries Build Communities is a collaboration between the University of South Florida School of Information's Responsive Librarianship Group and the Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library. This project was funded under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Florida’s LSTA program is administered by the Department of State’s Division of Library and Information Services.
