Libraries Connect Communities

Public libraries play a unique role in every community—often representing the only place that encourages everyone, regardless of income or social stature, to access the same resources, collaborate and make connections. A recent article in the Guardian said, "The libraries' most powerful asset is the conversation they provide—between books and readers, between children and parents, between individuals and the collective world. Take them away and those voices turn inwards or vanish. Turns out that libraries have nothing at all to do with silence.”
