By sharing their experience, librarians are able to accommodate the needs of their patrons while distancing themselves from that of a tutor. The library is their to provide resources, a physical space as well as a list of services, which may include tutoring, for the individual to succeed. The example of the community garden at the Onondaga Public Library is a perfect example of how the library can be a platform beyond the stacks. I think how the library positions itself within the community is up to the librarian. The library can be whatever the community needs it to be so long as the librarian allows it to happen.
