When Carbon Career and Technical Institute, Jim Thorpe, needed more space for computer labs, they found some space by downsizing the library in the Media Center.
"Our library wasn't being heavily utilized by the students, but our computers are always in use," said Kim Bittle, Keystone Preparation instructor. "The kids were only taking out a few books a year."
Bittle said that by downsizing the library, we created more space for computers.
"We didn't eliminate the library," she noted. "We downsized it."
She then sought to donate the books to other libraries.
