When you think of your local library, of course, you think of books.
But what about woodworking, playing the video game “Rock Band”, even making piñatas?
Mesa County libraries are changing from checking out books to checking out the latest “YouTube” video.
Computer labs are full, and getting used for more than research and school projects.
Now it's entertainment, social networking, and in this economic downturn, job hunting.
Youth activities, as well, are morphing from story time to creative crafting.
Library officials are working to design programs from woodworking to henna.
Officials agree it's gone from a quiet book ward to a community center, offering as much social interaction as information.
