Story of the day - Dalby Library

One of the great stories that emerged at the library 2.0 unconference was the story from Dalby public library who collaborated with teens to construct a Myspace for engagement with the community to support a grant application (Foundation for Young Australians).

The library provided a video camera to teens to make videos and take photographs of the town. Surveys were carried out to find out what they thought was needed in the town.

The application was successful and the library received $40000 dollars to implement services.

Sylvia, if you are reading this, add a comment to tell us more about it.
