A Favorite Joke or Quote: "The merit of all things lies in their difficulty." - Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers
Their Favorite Thing About Libraries: I have a lot of favorite things about libraries. From a user perspective, the ability to check out books, movies and more opens my world to so much more. From a librarian perspective, it is one of the best hidden gems of a job. Books are only part of libraries, patrons are the heart and soul. They are the reason we do what we do and why I love my job (besides our wonderful and supportive Board of Trustees and librarians!) The more services, programs, events and materials we can supply to our patrons, the more we can build a community that can grow and rely on one another. My goal for our library is to be the community center where everyone can share their talents and stories with each other and to experience new things and create lasting relationships. I certainly hope you'll stop by and see what we have to offer!

Their Favorite Thing About Libraries: Seeing what people read can really tell you a lot about a person. It can tell you things that a person themselves wouldn't say, or don't even know about themselves. Libraries and books are like a looking glass into a person's soul. Is that too deep?
