MIS- Better Together

My MIS was from Better Together and is on what I would guess is page 36. "The Near North Branch sits between two very different neighborhoods. The Gold Coast is...wealthy and mainly white.... The mostly African-American Cabrini Green to the west has been known for its grim, high-rise public housing...and run-down schools. Members of both communities use the library..." I picked these couple sentences because I am from Chicago and was surprised by the location of the library. In class we have heard about how libraries differ from rich to poor communities, but at the Near North Branch two extremely different communities come together and interact because of the library. Bringing these cultures together allows everyone to share and hear the ideas and differences between each other.
