Why do we love public libraries?
Here are 5 reasons
WHAT PUBLIC LIBRARIES DO
Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.
Educate all ages
Alongside schools, colleges and universities, public libraries provide a community service as basic as first response: equal opportunity in continuing education that allows all citizens to reach their full potential.
In public libraries, educational professionals and support staff maintain systems that provide knowledge. They guide acquisition of information, organize learning activities and host enlightening events.
Instruct and enlighten
With a wide and continuous curriculum of classes, workshops, presentations, events and activities, libraries deliver excellence in education and feed curiosity.
Public libraries attract residents who become customers and taxpayers. They empower entrepreneurs with classes and tools including computers, meeting rooms and equipment for copying and presenting.
Public libraries are investments in public education. The return is informed and productive residents at all levels of society, from those lifting themselves out of poverty to those thriving, all contributing to their communities.
