Library Local


By: Mary


A Library is defined as, “a building or room containing collections of books, periodicals, and sometimes films and recorded music for people to read, borrow, or refer to.”

A library is a unique and valuable resource.  It is more than just a storage space for books. Libraries are important cornerstones of a healthy community.  A library is a hub that serves as a center of learning, professional development, and health.  Libraries provide a place where new immigrants and their families can connect with resources, learn new skills, and meet new people.  A library is a place where young children attend story times, and older children attend after school programs. Adults can attend lectures on various interesting topics, and our senior citizens can gather to socialize, watch a free movie, or learn to use a computer.

Libraries are needed - Please support your local library!!
