With the remainder of its $5,000 John Cotton Dana (JCD) cash award, Hackney Library has now completed the purchase and installation of a flat-screen TV in the library’s Learning Café. (The library received the JCD award from the American Library Association in Summer 2009 to recognize the “Band Book Tour” Open House of 2009; the award has already funded the painting and purchase of diner booths installed in the Café in September 2010.)
The TV is tuned to CNN; it is muted and displays closed-captioning. The panel is mounted on the interior wall of the Learning Café area. Come visit the Learning Cafe and take a look!
