Tell Your Friends!
Most people don’t visit the library because they forget about it or aren’t quite sure how to use it. Let people in your community know that you find value in the library, meet up at the library with your kids, and share your secrets about why you’re a fan. Need some hard data? Use this library value calculator to see how much you and your family save by using the library!
Try Out A New Library Resource!
Have you made something in the library’s Hive Makerspace? Participated in a community book group? Researched the history of your home in the archives? Streamed a blockbuster movie online? You can do all these things and more at the library - why don’t you come and explore?
