Per the American Librarian Association: Libraries of all types strengthen their communities through education, lifelong learning, and a wealth of public services. No longer just a place for books, libraries have expanded beyond their traditional roles and provide more opportunities for community engagement and the delivery of new services that connect closely with their community’s needs. Libraries are at the heart of our cities, towns, schools, and campuses—a resource for all community members to find what they need to help improve their quality of life.
