Not to Mention the Death of Libraries

Large crowd attends library opening in Cortland. (Youngstown Vindicator, 6/10/2012)

Excerpt:  Judging by the size of the crowd gathered for Saturday’s grand opening of Warren-Trumbull County Public Library’s new Cortland branch, the death of printed books and magazines has been greatly exaggerated. 

A sizable group of seniors, parents and children showed up for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new facility — which also embraces new technology. 

The library board of trustees joined Karen Murphy, Cortland branch manager, to introduce the community to its new library after a flag-raising ceremony by Girl Scout Troop 213. 

The land on which the facility sits was purchased in 2001, and construction of the 10,636-square-foot building began in late August last year. The total cost of the project is about $2 million.
