“Edge helped us get outside the box as we looked at opportunities and needs. The Edge benchmarks have become part of our culture for planning and decision making about library investments. We have emphasized the importance of the benchmarks and measuring outcomes not just for the library but for all local government services. Edge has been a very powerful learning tool.”
