Libraries in Trouble

During my free-time I can often be found at a library or bookstore. I love to look through all the shelves of beautiful new books! It's wonderful!I highly recommend getting a library cards. Libraries are really the best kept secret. You can take out books, DVDS, books on tape, and magazines. Many libraries offer outstanding programs. Within the last month I have attended two concerts and a Children's storytime. All fun and free!
Libraries across the country and even in this area are in trouble. Many are having to shut their doors or limiting hours of operation and programs. Please don't let this happen. Contact your local governments to let them know how important you feel libraries are! Don't let our children live without such a precious resource.

Special Programs will be starting in just about a month! I can't wait!!!!
