In Better Together: Restoring the American Community, Robert D. Putnam (also
author of Bowling Alone, a lament for the loss of community in American life)
commented, "No longer a passive repository of books and information or an
outpost of culture, quiet, and decorum in a noisy world, the new library is an
active and responsive part of the community and an agent of change. In addition,
the Internet, which seemed to threaten its reason for being, turns out to be one of
the things that ...

In their words: “In Bowling Alone, Putnam shows how we have become
increasingly disconnected from family, friends, neighbors, and our democratic
structures—and how we may reconnect. He warns that our stock of social capital

American Community (Putnam, 2000) as to how to create the social capital that
had been lost. The examples illustrate specific ways in which private firms,
individuals, and community organizations have worked together to produce
social capital for ...
