Introducing the MicroLibrary
CALS has launched the MicroLibrary at the Millie Brooks Library, a reconfiguration of the library’s space, including the addition of child-friendly furniture and more desktop and laptop computers.
Nearly 40 people turned out for the opening celebration on October 13. State Rep. Denise Ennett, the principal and librarian from nearby Daisy Bates Elementary School, and Pulaski County Judge Barry Hyde attended, along with two of Millie Brooks’ daughters.
“Our goal is to help as many people as possible with reaching their full potential,” said CALS Executive Director Nate Coulter. “We have noticed a decline in the number of people visiting and borrowing materials from the Brooks Library. We wanted to figure out what we might offer instead that would be more attractive and useful to the community. The MicroLibrary is our attempt to offer services, resources, technology, and even entertainment, in response to what the community says they need from us.”
Outreach Coordinator Courtney Jones said the MicroLibrary is part of CALS’s continuing effort to expand outreach services especially in the areas of literacy and workforce development. “This is an opportunity to connect with the folks of Wrightsville in creative and meaningful ways,” said Jones. “We’re especially looking forward to creating partnerships there in the community which will allow us to reach out beyond our brick and mortar location.”
