Link to May 6 Cedar Rapids Gazette article, "Library staff visit libraries across the country for ideas".
Excerpt: Staff from the Cedar Rapids Public Library have been visiting libraries across the country to get ideas for the new library.
What they’re finding is in line with the kind of library we described in The Gazette in a February story about the future library.
Library staff have visited the Darien, Conn., library, and a series of libraries around Denver. Next week they go to Springfield, Mo. The trips are paid for by The Library Foundation.
“We made a proposal that we wanted to look at the best libraries in the country for ideas,” Library Director Bob Pasicznyuk said. “They granted us the money for the trip.”
