JEMA was awarded a sixth library for Scenic Regional Library System. This time we travel to St. Clair, MO where we are doubling the size of the existing library. The existing library is 5,000 sq. ft. and we are adding another 5,000. The existing space will be renovated and will feature a community meeting room.
The New York Times recently published an article called "Adding Classes and Content, Resurgent Libraries Turn a Whisper into a Roar." It speaks to the rebound libraries are having around the nation. The prediction that books and hence libraries would no longer be relevant because of the digital revolution is dead wrong.
