The Modern Library

Libraries in the modern age have become community gathering places. They’re educational hubs with learning opportunities for all ages and go-to locations to explore local history. As an entrepreneurial incubator, the modern library attracts business-minded individuals with print and technological resources and state-of-the art meeting spaces. You can create, learn, play, explore, research, connect, design, and do more at libraries. 

Take a look at Suffolk Public Library’s Annual Report to see what your library currently offers.
