Youngstown Free Library (Niagara Co.)
The Youngstown Free Library received $2,850 from the $800,000 Public Library Construction Grant Program to make alterations to the computer area. The Youngstown Free Library had a cluster of 3 workstations for public access computers. The library had a set of reference shelves under the windows. It was difficult to get to one computer that backed up to the shelves and it was very messy because all the cords were exposed to the public. The project was to build 4 new computer stations under the window. The reference shelves were moved out to form an aisle across from the nonfiction books. The project was helped along by the Friends of the Youngstown Free Library purchasing flat screens for all the stations. This meant the workstations would work with less depth and gave us several more inches of space.
