By Simone Wichers-Voss.
A bibliotheca is a library; a catacomb of knowledge and learning. It conjures up visions of heavy shelves groaning under the weight of priceless, leather bound first editions with gold lettering, solely for the intellectual and erudite elite. Not so in Meridian. The Meridian Public Library is a light, welcoming retreat, where one can find anything from children’s books, to romance novels, to history books, to video’s and computer work stations.
