LinkedIn “Influencer” Karen Cator, CEO at Digital Promise, argues that people who don’t support public libraries “have overlooked the role public libraries play in our communities, the lives of individuals and our society — a role they have always played, now with a modern twist.” Cator tracks usage statistics documented by the American Library Association.
