The future of your local Michigan library
Pre-Wikipedia there was the encyclopedia.
Pre-Google there was the reference desk.
In the age of the Internet, what’s the future of the local library?
We drove across the state and visited several local libraries to see for ourselves. We found libraries that serve their communities in different ways.
Some still use card catalogs (they stay open when the power goes out.)
And others that offer their patrons access to all kinds of technology.
Follow our trip to these seven libraries here!
