A community library has always been a refuge of sorts. Whether you’re looking for a quiet place to do homework, need a little bit of reference and research assistance, want to curl up in a chair with a new title, or just need a little bit of comfort, it’s always been a place you can count on to be there for you. Beyond that, a library is so much more than just a place with books.
