One of the coolest things about the library is that almost all of the books (more than 1.3 million!) are stored in stacks and use a system called a bookBot that retrieves them, saving bookshelf space. The touchscreens in the library, your phone, computer or tablet will allow the books to be retrieved by the robot within five minutes and you can simply go to the main desk to pick it up. (I don't think the public can join as members).
Take the kids or take your camera and make a point to stop by the library and get a taste of what libraries of the future will be like.

Instawalk Raleigh is a group of Raleigh/Triangle people that meet up regularly at different locations around the city to take pictures and share on Instagram. This was a great opportunity for the family to get out and take pictures and use their creative skills!! We take pictures with our phones, Itouches or cameras and hashtag the photos with #instawalkraleigh. You can then see on Instagram all the pictures that were taken by the group that day. We also enjoyed meeting and connecting with some nice Raleigh folks who share a common interest in photography. Looking forward to the next Instawalk Raleigh destination!!
