ABSTRACT
Sometimes the key to a vibrant, healthy community centre can be right under our nose, hidden in plain sight. For too long public libraries have been under appreciated by decision makers and funders, often drawing less interest and attention than a new sports arena, shopping complex, office tower or theatre. This has begun to change as more communities and their elected and other decision makers are recognising the economic and other engines which public libraries provide. The troublesome cloud over this bright picture in the US and in Australia is lack of state funding at the same time as states lavish support on many economic development projects, sometimes of questionable value.
