Welcome to National Library Week!
When I was young I needed a library to complete any of my school work. Without the resources of my local library I could not have found the information needed to complete any reports or research projects.
Now the internet replaces research trips to the library for most of the school work we are doing. We do still need to go to the library for some book reports but we mostly go for fun. Our library is very family friendly and has a wonderful selection of books. We each leave with at least five books when we go, we also rent music and movies from the library as well. Our library also has copies of all the major newspapers and magazines. We can also rent e-books and audio books electronically.
Our local library also supplies wonderful study rooms, hosts craft projects, teen groups and informative lecture and music series.
We are not only patrons of the library but supporters through donations of gently used books, purchasing used books at their monthly sales and of course donations of our time and money.
For many people a library is the only place they have to get school work done, to find books, to have a safe warm place to spend their time.
Visit and support your local library. Instill a love of the library in your children. The library gives so much to so many.
