The above linked article talks about the things that the library had to become to keep itself up to date with what the community needs. It is not just for loaning books. It has many programs now, and provides much needed shelter for the community. I am glad that more people are using it for a variety of things. It is nice to see such a busy place that is free for everyone.
The second article linked above talks about why libraries are the unsung heroes of our communities. I totally agree with it!
The third article talks about how many more people are visiting libraries now, and why. Wonderful reasons! Wonderful programs!
I love my libraries. I am glad to see that others do, too.
