Libraries = Education: An Interview With Valerie Gross
by Dave Shumaker
Valerie Gross is president and CEO of the Howard County Library System in Maryland. Shortly after she was hired in 2001, a sympathetic member of the county council told her that the library system was "not even on the radar." To change this attitude, Gross formulated a strategy based on the principle Libraries = Education. The results were impressive: massive increases in library use and funding, designation as the 2013 Gale/Library Journal Library of the Year, and five-star ranking as a Library Journal Star Library for 5 consecutive years.

#Lib4Ham: Public Libraries Discover the Value of Hamilton
by Brandi Scardilli
As Hamilton racks up more and more awards, library staffers have been taking notice. Its cast recording album is available via hoopla, which means libraries using that service can recommend it to patrons. And since the musical is based on a book, library staffers can easily point patrons toward the source material, as well as toward books with related subjects.
