Libraries are integral contributors to a vibrant, thriving community. And yet, in times of funding cutbacks, libraries are often at the top of the list of services to be trimmed.

Libraries are more than books. Most offer audiobooks, DVDs, and CDs for check out, as well as access to online journal, reference, and newspaper databases. E-books and e-magazines are often available, too. Then there’s story time for little ones, literacy programming, interlibrary loan, reference help… The list goes on.
