What does it take to open a public library?

Here’s something you might not have thought about – What does it take to open a public library? Jessica Klipa has written an article in the St. Petersburg Times asking and trying to answer that very question, about opening a local branch library.

Suzy George, the chief librarian for the Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, is quoted as saying “many libraries started largely due to the residents communicating the need to the library board” (From what I understand, the library board in this case covers a very large area, and the residents are asking for a library in their particular location).
