Libraries and the Economy
Libraries across North Central Florida are seeing increases in visitors. It especially noticeable in areas hit hard by unemployment rates. A large portion of that increase is among people using the library's resources to help apply for a job or other types of assistance such as food stamps. With so many services only being provided online, libraries are attracting people who need internet access.
"The beauty of the library is that our services are free and open," said Guylene Resue, a librarian at the Hawthorne Branch library. "And we're trying to meet the needs of our community."
