Internet changes the way that we use libraries


We don't use the Saint Joseph County Public Library to solely check out books anymore.

Twenty-five years ago, the internet changed that.

Patrons can now walk into the building and sit down at a computer for everything from job searches and research to social media.

"We've become more of a community space because of the internet," says Communication Executive Jennifer Zent. "It's opened up our doors to a wider audience."

The internet has also given libraries another means to check out books. They're now available digitally.
