As far as libraries go, there's important things: books, chairs, shelves, librarians, computers. Then, less important things, like wi-fi, ESL classes, voting booths, and bathrooms. Wait, bathrooms? For one library in Vermont, their historical building came with a floor, walls, roof, but no lavatory. When it was converted into a library, nobody thought to add one, because the church next door was friendly and allowed readers to use their holy bathroom. Now, there will be no more running outside to answer the call of nature: the library now has a bathroom.
