The Library
Collection
Libraries are central to our lives.
We've used them all our lives. Mary
Ann is very active in our local
"Friends" group, one daughter is a
librarian, the other is a book binder.

We believe libraries are central to a
modern civilization. They are the
most egalitarian institution we
have.  We're perfectly entitled to
spend hours within their walls
(providing we're not creating a
disturbance). They can be a place of
peace and quiet or a bustling center
of activity. Libraries exist to help us
entertain and enrich ourselves.  
Think of the services they offer;
books, DVDs, CDs, computer use
and often classes, reference services,
story hour and classes for kids and
so much more; ALL for a
MINIMUM of tax dollars! And yet
libraries are so often  targeted
during lean times.

Support your local library & be
richer for it.
