One New Thing: Supporting and involving your user community

I noticed the mention on librarian.net about this project: when the San Francisco Public Library discovered that books on gay and lesbian topics (and related subjects) had been vandalised beyond repair, they gave the damaged books out to artists in the community to create works of art from the destruction. The resulting exhibition is called Reversing Vandalism.

I think this a beautiful way to find a resolution to a terrible situation, and also to involve your community in your library in an innovative way. I don’t recommend you start tearing up your own books, but what a great story base for a library display!
