Libraries are called to market specifically to their populations (Matthies & Sanbourne, 1999, p.42).

Libraries must "meet the needs of whatever communities they serve by gathering direct data" (Matthies & Sanbourne, 1999, p. 24).

Matthies and Sanbourne (1999) found that libraries "are the cultural hubs for many communities" (p. 27). 

Note: In your work, if you quote directly from your source, you will need to use quotation marks and (if possible) include a page number.
