Love & Thanks to Libraries!

"My library gives me a free place to take the kids and feel like part of the community. "Being a stay-at-home mom can be very isolating."

"I’m dyslexic and needed extra help learning to read, but the library was my saving grace."

"I've begun to talk with the other parents/caregivers as well and begin friendships."

"Growing up my family couldn’t afford a home computer and internet service so the library is where I would go to research colleges and eventually apply for them.

"My parents could never afford to buy me all the books I wanted to read."

"It's a simple but meaningful way for me to honor my late father's memory."

"Books helped me feel a little less lonely."

"The library provides so many resources for me to practice a new language."
