The Evolving Role of Libraries

It’s Thursday morning and Devin Bateson is hard at work at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library.

Bateson isn’t checking in books whose due dates have come, nor is he topping up the stacks on the library floor. Instead, he’s sanding a 3-D wooden cutout of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, its parts precisely shaped on the library’s high-tech computer numerical control (CNC) machine that he’s nicknamed Carvey.
