(Harrisburg) -- The half-a-century-old laws governing the commonwealth's libraries are getting an update.
With Governor Corbett's signature, the new Library Code wipes away outdated mandates -- like the requirement that every library district center must have a minimum of 300 16-millimeter films in its collection.
Corbett says the replacement measure also aims to keep libraries up-to-date.
"It establishes continuing education requirements for librarians," Corbett says. "The new law updates requirements for staff, collections, facilities and accessibility."
The new law is designed to be flexibile and doest not require libraries to keep specific or outdated media like videotapes.
