Shelf Life: How public libraries help their communities thrive

When was the last time you visited your public library? Would it surprise you to know the Santa Clara County Library District lends out PlayStation 4 or Xbox games and provides free access to popular apps including Headspace and Ancestry?  How much is your digital Wall Street Journal subscription or tutor for homework help?

Library services impact our communities in deep and positive ways.
