  • Taking the show on the road
  • Library serves patrons of all ages, including teens

    Libraries mean different things to different people. I do believe that it all depends on what you need from your library. It also means that we need to try to be many different things for different groups of people. There is the traditional view of libraries that I try to uphold. This includes books, programs for young children and cultural events for adults. While this view may not appeal to everyone, it really is the cornerstone of our industry. On the other hand, in order to stay relevant, we must shape our services to the demands of our community.
