DMGuion:

"Libraries are about more than books or reading. They also sponsor concerts, lectures, workshops, classes, and similar events."

 

"Many libraries have auditoriums and offer various kinds of concerts, plays, or lectures. Many libraries have space for exhibiting art and perhaps a collection to display in it. Whether it has its own art collection or not, it can offer its exhibit space to both local and traveling arts organizations.
Libraries usually have meeting rooms, where all sorts of clubs and interest groups can gather. In today’s economy, workshops on various aspects of job hunting may draw people in to the library who otherwise may not have thought to use it."
