The Future is Now!

It's Happening!
Libraries of the Future are being realized.


This week I toured a new completely digital branch of the public library in my county.  The staff were helpful and discussed all of the features of the new branch.  This location is a great place to work and have meetings.  I hope we see these technology-rich branches pop up more and more in the near future.
