If you’ve been to the Logansport library lately, you’ll see it’s far from a bunch of shelves of books. Yes, there are lots and lots of books, but there’s so much more.
The library has seen increases in the usage of its public computers, as well as more checkouts of CDs, DVDs and e-books. The world is changing and how information is disseminated is changing with it. Our library, and many others across the nation, have been changing right along with it.
We were encouraged by the recent report by the library on its 2012 usage, which showed usage remained on par with the year prior.
But for our city and our society, we’re hopeful library director David Ivey is right in thinking 2014 will set records in usage at the local branches.
We think more bunny-laden events will help set those records.
THE ISSUE Library's importance in the 21st century OUR VIEW It's not just about books anymore.
