Taking Library to the Street - Washington, DC
A public library in the District of Columbia operates a summertime "street corner" library. Here is how Adult Librarian Elisa describes it: "We sit underneath the library's overhang close to the street corner, with some of our fiction and A-V materials from our division, and attract passerby to sign up for a DC library card. We're doing this until September. Everyone has a shift so we take turns going outside. If the weather isn't so great or we don't have enough staff that day, we won't do it." Don't you just love the image?
