Thanks for the heads up about Flagstaff library accepting Quartzite library card. Is "Lilly" the name of the online checkout system? Thanks. Luther.Quartzsite library is small. But has a substantial variety of DVD movies that can be checked out. They give library cards to nomads! You can then while camped away from Quartzsite checkout audiobooks, ebooks and a HUGE selection of popular magazines including foreign ones in electronic format. All kinds of subjects of magazines.
Quartzsite library cards are accepted “in person” at the Flagstaff public library. Handy if you head to northern AZ for the summer.
The library for a small fee will photocopy or do printing. They also have some private rooms that can be reserved. That is handy if you need a place to stop and do an important video conference at appointment time, in private, rather than attempting it in your vehicle.
Libraries also have access to online versions of Chiltons car repair manuals and genealogy research sources and to various news paper archives, public records and more. Researching subjects has always been one of their primary functions. It is not there just for pleasure reading. They were always an information highway long before the digital age.
They are not closing down anytime soon, instead they are adapting in new ways including some of them offering space for “makers” functions such as 3D printers and computers with 3D design software on them. Those are newly important resources to support the STEM and STEAM programs being taught in public schools. Which goes along with not all families can afford to provide the educational resources needed for their children to do homework and advanced studies to enhance the classroom learning.
