Hide and Seek: Downtown Cedar Rapids Satellite Branch Library

Link to November 30 AP article in Mason City Globe-Gazette.

The Cedar Rapids Public Library opened a satellite branch in downtown months ago. But administrators and employees say it has been a challenge attracting customers.

Managing director Christina Riedel says there is apparently a lack of awareness the office is open for business.

Riedel admits the satellite office has a different dynamic than did the old library before last year's flood. Its 1,800-square-foot space is more of a hole-in-the-wall library compared with its former 85,000-square-foot downtown location
