Necessary to Become Successful

Community Engagement  Quality of Life

They provide a place for someone like me to do things necessary to become successful.


How have libraries made a difference in your life?

Just being able to go to a place that has many different resources to help in many areas of your life. I can remember coming into the library to put a resume together before I had a computer, when I was looking and applying for different jobs. Also, coming in to do research while I was in college and being able to have a quiet place to study when I needed a place to do that.


Why were you interested in serving on the Library Board?

I was interested because a good friend of ours who worked for the library, Mrs. Bonnie, was great.  She and her staff were wonderful to the youth who we serve in our business.  We have a Learning Center and the library staff did many wonderful things with our children. So when asked would I mind serving on the Board, I did not hesitate.


Libraries are important because...

Libraries provide a place for someone like me to do things necessary to become successful. Job searching, resume building, a place to study and do research, and most importantly very child-friendly, where children can fall in love with books and reading!
