Jerome Library Director Looks Into The Future


By Jay Michaels

Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The new director of the Jerome Public Library has big plans for the library.

Linda Mecham has been working in libraries and education for 20 years. Her goal is to continue adding to the library's collection, which means everything from traditional books to new electronic services.

Mecham says, "It's also a social center, it's a place of learning now. People come in and bring their laptops and bring their schoolwork here. We proctor tests online. Libraries are different, they're not the same library that we grew up with as children."

Mecham was the library's assistant director before taking over after Director Patty Metcalf stepped down earlier this year.
