What are you getting us for Christmas ?
As this is the season of giving, supporting your local library is a good start. How can you support the library? Although your good wishes are wonderful and your messages on Facebook and the library website make us feel good, this is not what I am talking about. Well, the best way to help your library is to just to come in.
Libraries are community places. In order to operate, we must have people coming in to use us. We need people to sign up for library cards, use our computers, check out our books and movies and come to our programs. Come by to get a cup of coffee and just say hi.
We only do our jobs here if you come to see us. If you don’t come and use our services, we may have our funding cut. We would like to be here when you need us for tax forms, a computer to write your congressman, how to get a stain out of your favorite table cloth and make calls to the Mayo clinic.
We are a person –oriented browser that will help you find things you need to find. We will be here to help you print a document and get your tickets to the Chief’s game printed. But none of these things can happen if you don’t come in.
So if you really want to support your library, come see us. If you don’t come, we may not be here anymore. We want a chance to be A Gathering Place for you and your family. Come to our programs and use this amazing gift to our community.
