According to American Library Association figures, the number of librarians focusing on improving their facility’s technology continues to grow. Statistics also show that out of the 121,160 plus libraries in the U.S., at least 3/4s of them offer patrons access to an array of digital content. For those libraries that wish to become, or are already part of the digital age, having the right equipment is key.
As more and more library patrons require computer access while researching materials, computer ready furniture is a must. Computer terminals or computer kiosks are not new to the library scene, and have traditionally had their reserved area among the rows of books. They hold a stationary desktop computer and are still a valuable asset for those in the community who would otherwise not have computer access.
