Love, your Library Foundation

Hello ,

Walking into a drugstore this week, I was surrounded by all things red, flowery and heart-shaped. Things to remind us to celebrate love.

At your Library, love isn't limited to February. Expressions of love in the Library take all forms, all year - it's in the drawings preschoolers leave for their favorite librarians after a storytime. It's in the kindness shown to customers seeking shelter during a tornado or anytime. It's in the patience of a librarian helping a senior navigate the web. And it's in our very mission: to improve lives and build a stronger community. 

Donors sometimes tell us why they support libraries, and these stories usually come from the heart. In this month of celebrations of love, we want to take a moment to thank you.

We love you back.
