Ammar has a great idea. We totally agree. His idea will make the locating of books, music tapes, and movies quickly.

WAY TO GO Ammar!

I would like to see the music divided into alphabetical order for each genre. I have attempted many times to find specific items the search indicated are on the shelf, but no luck actually finding the exact CD.

Also, as the library continues to need more space, I wonder if there's a way to put some of the collection in a storage facility and items brought out as requested. Wouldn't that be cheaper than trying to have so much of the collection accessible all the time?

I can see these type of electronic devices being used in Libraries everywhere in near future. I'm sure the cost of implementing Ammar's ideas may be of concern right now.
As for having a video games room in libraries might be hard to push past the parents of teenagers. This age group is already over exposed to video games at home.

money, money, money is the Major issue here. Geez the library doesn't even have their plastic bags anymore let alone air conditioning on a hot summer day and now you want this.?

I was brought up using the Dewey system--I think ALL kids and adults should learn. why do we need a GPS system for the library? Let's put the money elsewhere. It is bad enough these libriarins are already babysitting most the kids of the schools nearby for free-teach your own kid the library.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
