How can you help the library?

1) Dust off your library card and use it Ė check out books, ebooks, DVDs, magazines, anything. We have some really great stuff!

2) Attend library programs.

--->And once youíve done these things, be vocal about it! Tell your friends and neighbors how the cool things that are provided by the library (you know, in case they forgot). Word of mouth is essential when it comes to library promotion.

3) Write to your local politicians about how the library benefits you.
Politicians tend to support what communities want them to support, so donít be shy about letting them know how swell you think libraries are.

4) Speaking of money: you can always donate some to the library! We're a registered charity.

5) If you have kids, teach them to see the library as a place that holds opportunities for both education and entertainment.
Take them to programs like storytime and crafts and gaming. Get them a library card at an early age. Make going to the library a fun family experience.
