LIBRARY TALK BLOG: 17,000 Square Feet for Books? Really?

Some of you are probably wondering why we need a 17,000 square foot library in Camp Verde. Do we really need that much room for books, magazines, movies, music and audiobooks? No, we don't. Not for books, magazines, movies, music and audiobooks. And libraries, especially in rural communities like Camp Verde, are about a lot more than the stuff we keep on the shelves these days. Libraries are about people & space - space for people to access resources and technology otherwise unavailable to them, space where people can meet, relax, work, socialize, learn, and more.
