Community Center

Record #:
When technology-based research tools began gaining a foothold in American society, experts in fields outside of librarianship started arguing librarians were no longer needed and closing libraries would be economically beneficial. However, with the needs that libraries, particularly public, meet, they are still highly valued community centers for patrons representing the socioeconomic spectrum. This helps justify grand-scale renovations of public libraries such as Charlotte’s main branch.
