From The South Idaho Press, Renee Wells writes,
\"What the Rupert DeMary Library and the Burley Municipal Library (Heyburn, ID) have combined to create is what library leaders would like to see happen nationwide. Robin Cabot, from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), in Washington, D.C., visited with committee members about their efforts in promoting the proposed Magic Sage Library District. Cabot praised the committee for its promotion efforts, but his real excitement was generated by the efforts the committee has put forth in writing an exemplary grant and administering it in such a way as to become a pattern for libraries nationwide to follow. Asked by Committee Chairperson Kathleen Hedberg why Congress was so willing to appropriate money for such a project, Cabot said the Mini-Cassia effort is a excellent example of how library districts should operate.\"
