When the Arlington Heights Memorial Library needed to conserve space and give patrons a better way to work, NEC Display Solutions offered the ideal solution.
For many years, libraries, much like museums, were trapped in the stereotype of being archaic, dusty facilities that rested at the bottom of the average person’s list of fun or entertaining places to spend an evening or weekend afternoon. Over the past few years, however, as these institutions have found various uses for advancing technologies, perceptions have changed for the better. In the case of libraries, computer-based card catalogs and the advent of the Internet have forever changed the way libraries organize their materials and how their patrons go about finding them. These advancements also have made a person’s time at the library more efficient and stimulating.
