Different styles of libraries

There are various types of libraries that function at every level. Academic, law, music, art, medical, public, and school libraries to name a few.  All poised to serve the specific community which they serve.  As I work in a school library and study the different ways in which other school libraries are utilized, I find that I need to make this one unique for my patrons. When I came into this position, I was told that this library was to be designated a “research” library only, due to its limited space and lack of function.  Yet despite its designation, it is a “working” library.  Students come in to work on their homework, conduct research, or search for books.   Each library knows the respective community that it serves. Librarians are the eyes and ears for the patrons.  Their keen insight in knowing what it is that works and does not for the sake of the patrons make a unique library indeed.
