According to a 1982 library
newsletter article, "if you have cable television in your home, you have
a direct link to the latest in library information." That was the year
that the library channel began broadcasting on cable television. Of
course, this "direct link" actually meant viewers reading
character-generated text on their television screens.
Friends commissioned composer Richard Threet to write music to be
broadcast with the library's 1st video productions in 1983. By Spring
1985, the Library Cable Channel was broadcasting story times,
discussions with authors such as Sherwood Anderson, art programs, and a
nature discovery series.
Between 1990 and 1991, more
educational programs were added to the cable schedule thanks to LSCA
Title I funds. Programming hours were increased from 6 to 8 hours a day,
with over 30,000 homes in the city wired for cable.
