21st Century community based library services are moving beyond traditional library buildings and the web. The future may be uncertain, but computers and technology are sure to be a part of it. The Colorado State Library has been increasing access to broadband, computers, and technology in communities across the state through the Colorado Public Computer Centers project. Philadelphia has gone beyond the public library walls by locating computer Hot Spots in community-anchor organizations that are satellites for library services and programming. Learn how to find funding, develop partnerships, and adapt this library project for your community.
