Broome Library Still Busy Despite Nooks and iPads

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Thousands of people still use the Broome County Public Library every week, even as digital devices become more popular for readers.

Library director Lisa Wise says almost 400,000 people visit the downtown Binghamton library every year.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program during National Library Week, Wise said the Court Street library has become a community center.

Visitors stop by the library to check out a book or to attend meetings, educational programs and special events.

Wise said sometimes as many as 1500 people will visit the library on a busy day.

Although printed books still are the most popular items checked out of the Binghamton library, Wise said there are plenty of other items that attract people of all ages.
