dc.description.abstractThis thesis focuses on the relationship between quality of life and public libraries – the latter situated within a broader context of social infrastructure – and I make two primary arguments throughout. First, I argue that there is an interrelationship between the idea(l)s of quality of life, social infrastructure, and complete communities, to which public libraries are uniquely positioned to significantly contribute. I also make the argument, building off research by Eric Klinenberg, that municipalities and regional districts need to begin specific planning projects and initiatives aimed at encouraging and fostering the growth and development of social infrastructure. The thesis concludes with recommendations to the planning profession.en_US
