Beyond Books: Exploring the Hidden Treasures of Your Local Library

Posted on Dec 14, 2023, by

In an age of rapid technological advancement and ever-changing demographics, libraries are evolving to become more than just repositories of books – and audio – and video. These days libraries offer a treasure trove of cool things and vibrant spaces where you can explore, learn, and DO so many interesting things. 

Imagine having access to cutting-edge technology for everyone. Right now, in the Fox Valley you can find libraries with everything from 3D printers to virtual reality equipment, from flight simulators to video recording studios. In this episode, we visit several libraries in the Fox Valley to find things that might surprise you. And then later, we highlight plans in the works for new library spaces and expansions that will offer even more interesting things to try!
