Linda Collins on the Falmouth Public Library

"The need for a library is always going to be there. It's just that the use of the existing space will change, or be reconfigured to meet the changing needs of the community."

Director Linda Collins charts the history of the Falmouth Public Library: from a Free Public library that cost the town $50 per year to an institution serving up books, digital media, art, programming, local history, and much more to tourists and year-round residents alike. This interview was conducted by Anna Lee on September 22, 2021 at Falmouth Community Television.
