Each of our libraries sets aside open space for meeting rooms, perhaps the last town square in a free democracy.
Large and small, glass-walled, available to all.
perhaps the last town square in a free democracy.
Shared spaces, where we can meet for conversation and study, or a roomful of citizens convene and view a video conference, unlimited by distance, weather or economics.
An open resource, without consideration to a patron’s social standing or economic circumstance; they benefit young and old, homeless and housed alike.
...Filled with purpose and events: it is your space!
The Open Door to
“Libraries raised me. I don’t believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.” –
Ray Bradbury
Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.
