I work at a library. We have a Studio where patrons can record music or create videos as well. We lend video games, blu-rays, Rokus (for streaming services), barbies, American girl dolls..... some libraries in our area lend cake pans, musical instruments and fishing poles!
The goal is to get people in the library, the goal is to make them happy, the goal is to have them support their library the next time a referendum comes around..... give them as much value for their tax dollars. We had a referendum pass for a new building 10 years ago. Our building is huge and our patrons love it. Many libraries around us were not able to get referendums approved, they too have had to offer more to make patrons realize how valuable a resource we can be. We still have books and people still check them out.
I do agree that the library isn't as quiet as it used to be. Come early in the day or on the weekends.... avoid after school!
