Washington Library Increases Service by Giving Patrons the Keys

How a library reinvented itself for the community with the help of technology.
Location: 
Yacolt, WA
Librarian: 
Sam Wallin

If you visit the Yacolt Library Express in Yacolt, Washington, you'll be greeted with the sights you'd expect at any public library: shelves of books and other media, patrons reading or studying, public computers. But you might not be greeted by a librarian. That's because of the 68 hours that the Yacolt library is open every week, there are staff members present for only about 15 of them.
