Bookless Library Branch:Glorified Computer Lab?


Marisa Ramirez writes \"One of the newest library branches in Tucson, Arizona has a unique feature: a library sans books. The Santa Rosa Learning Center, funded from a federal grant by the Housing and Urban Development Department\'s (HUD) Hope VI Project, is reminiscent of a computer lab, providing entirely web-based resources.

The idea of the project is to bridge the digital divide in the historically impoverished neighborhood of Barrio Santa Rosa.

Is anyone aware of another public library branch that consists entirely of computers? How can a bookless library like Santa Rosa claim to be any more than a glorified computer lab?
