Libraries have been an important part of my life since I’ve been able to walk and talk. I remember story time as a child, checking records out of my home-town library collection, spending hundreds of hours completing research and writing papers in the library, and today checking out eBooks. My best friend and I recently went to our public library for a class on raising evergreen trees in planters. After the lecture we got to plant (and take home) a new tree. Libraries not only provide valuable resources to our community, but are a gathering place for those that love to learn!
