What features would you like to see if the city builds a new public library?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 19, 2004
“They should build it around a coffee shop or cafe atmosphere. Students need a quiet and comfortable place to study. Sometimes regular coffee shops are too noisy, but I think that studying should be a somewhat social activity.”
“I would like the largest reference section they can build. They should model it after the library in Johnson County.”
“Internet access. I think they underestimate how much people depend on libraries to use computers.”
“I think they need lots of computers for students who don’t have them. They also need large sections for children and teenagers, so it can be a fun place for them to be.”
