As a child I remember the library as gloomy and quiet place with very little activity other than searching for a book, checking it out or checking it back in with a possible fine for being late. I never watched a movie there, no games played or story time, no book club.
Oh how things have changes. As one of the librarians’ told me, “we are not quiet, we talk and love to laugh”. Today, our local libraries are a hub of activity in the community, they serve people of every age, income level, location, ethnicity, and physical ability. They connect people and provide information and resources needed by people to live, learn, work, and grow. Kids get help with homework, play games, multiple age groups participate in art and craft classes, book clubs and computer classes are offered to older adults. There is place for everyone at the library.
