    Arlington is giving people one more reason to stay indoors this summer.

    Saturday, the city's new $30 million, state-of-the-art public library opened for the first time.

    It's taking trips to the library to the next level.

    Besides books and computers, it features a genealogy room, a butterfly garden, a shop for sewing and knitting and a room full of 3-D printers, drawing the library into the digital age.

    A school officer and a student were injured at Wisconsin's Oshkosh West High School Tuesday morning, when the student was shot after attempting to stab the officer with a sharp object. The shooting comes just one day after a school resource officer at Waukesha South High School shot a 17-year-old armed student who refused to drop his weapon.

    "[Technology] connects people for sure, but it also disconnects people in the human connection and so libraries are a space that allow that now so people can come," said Yoko Matsumoto, Arlington’s Director of Libraries.

    The library is three stories tall. The first floor is for elementary-aged children, the second is for adolescents and the third is for adults.
