100 state agencies and non-profits cooperate to serve Delawareans in need

Delaware's Governor Jack Markell praised the work of public libraries and the state's Division of Libraries in serving as a linchpin to bring together agencies that normally do not work together in the Division of Libraries' innovative Community Resources Exchange program, in which social service agencies, non-profit organizations and libraries work together to maximize their resources and reach those in need.

"The brilliance of this program may be its simplicity", said Governor Markell to the representatives from organizations across the state who met together on February 23rd to hear about each others programs, network, and share resources- often using public libraries as a central point for public programming, services, and information distribution.
