More than just books and computers, the modern library is a place where citizens engage, interact and discover. The library is truly a reflection of the community it serves, and a robust, diverse and bustling library is the sign of a healthy and invested community. For many, libraries are the gateway to the wider world, a source of entertainment and information, a place where connections to the community are formed.
The library also continues to fill many traditional roles in the community and research will always be an important part of what we do. Our Arizona Collection contains many rare and out-of-print books related to our home state. Our subscription to the Foundation Directory Online provides access to grants for local non-profits. We have copies of the Arizona Daily Sun on microfilm dating back to 1952. Our archive is home to maps and historical documents that tell the story of Flagstaff.
Today’s library is limitless and isn’t just a building; the digital library has been a game changer. It allows access to a myriad of content and includes ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, magazines, streaming movies, language instruction and preparation for the GED or other occupational exams. The world has become a much smaller place in so many ways; digital content is one of the ways in which this is reflected.
