Library + Mall = More Reading

If it gets more people reading, I am all for it. I wish the lame mall by my house had a library in it.

"In 2001, the King County Library System, which includes Seattle and is one of the largest circulating libraries in the United States, opened its first library in a shopping mall after the owner of the popular Crossroads Mall in eastern King County contacted the library and offered space.

The library at the Crossroads Mall has proven to be a popular place for spouses who are waiting for their mates to finish shopping, says Karen Hardiman, managing librarian of this branch. Mall employees visit during their lunch hour. And the computers, which have wireless Internet access, attract job-seekers who come in to use them in their hunt for employment."
