Abstract:
When technology-based research tools began gaining a foothold in American society, experts in fields outside of librarianship started arguing librarians were no longer needed and closing libraries would be economically beneficial. However, with the needs that libraries, particularly public, meet, they are still highly valued community centers for patrons representing the socioeconomic spectrum. This helps justify grand-scale renovations of public libraries such as Charlotte’s main branch.

Abstract:
Before Keith Scott’s death in September 2016, many may have suggested that racial relations had improved, citing as proof Charlotte’s schools becoming a model of desegregation. The protest after Scott’s death drove home another perception about black-white relations: they were more reminiscent of the Jim Crow era than the 1980s.

Abstract:
A follow up to his article, “All that Remains,” Garfield revisits the stories of nine holocaust survivors, three of whom had died since his first article was published in 2009. Data about the expected decline of Holocaust survivors by 2030 underscore the need to record the stories of other survivors. Data about the number of hate crimes targeting Jews underscore the reality that anti-Semitism exists just as well in the United States, offering another motive for making Holocaust survivors’ stories known.

Abstract:
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg school system, cited as the most segregated in the state, is trying to make an integration comeback through programs such as pairing. Uniting schools such as Billingsville and Cotswold, it offers students from the metro’s poorer sections the same quality education those from more affluent areas have had. In the process, leaders hope this program can also help change Charlotte’s dismal socioeconomic ranking among the largest cities in the US.
