Named Reader's Digest America's Best 100 public libraries in 2004. Melvill Dewey wouldn't know what to think. The titanium skin of the Cerritos Library changes color in the light, but it's inside that things get really revolutionary. Meaning: no more shushing or musty bookshelves. Instead, visitors get quick answers from staff at information stands modeled after hotel concierge desks. Roving librarians use wireless headsets and handheld computers. The children's area features a full-size T. rex replica and a NASA space shuttle model. A 15,000-gallon aquarium makes the place a bit like Disneyland (just a few exits southeast). Computers (200) and laptop ports (1,200) bring the world to anyone with a library card (Note: non-Cerritos residents must pay $100 per year for the privilege).
