Angela Paterek, the library’s training manager, oversees computer training and staff development. As computers flourished in the late 20th century, libraries faced what seemed at the time to be a stark choice: adapt or disappear. The adaptation most libraries chose was based on an early acceptance of the computerization of the country, creativity, and a desire to go on being of value to the communities that, for the most part, went on supporting them with public dollars. “Adaptation made libraries more of a community center,” said Paterek. “Things were based more on programming and, with technology, having the training for the people. A lot of people don’t realize library tech training is entirely free.”
