I love American Libraries Direct! It is always chocked full of good news items about and for libraries. Worth subscribing to the weekly eNewsletter.
Here is an item on Rural Libraries. I like how the national association spotlights member libraries.
"The Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) has redesigned its website as a dynamic space that captures ARSL’s personality and mission in a way that is appealing and relevant to its members. It is also spotlighting its member libraries on the homepage each month. Elements of this website, including the new ARSL logo, were unveiled at their annual conference in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, September 11–13...." Association for Rural and Small Libraries
