Libraries are more relevant now than ever

Dear Editor:
Thank you for your photograph of the Elgin Public Library’s beautiful new facility. What a treasure the new library is for the town of Elgin.
Libraries are more relevant than ever. Libraries are for everyone, of all ages. Libraries are wonderful, precious institutions. They are truly “palaces for the people.” Even the New York Times says so! And on Wednesday on KCCU, “The Takeaway” had a segment which featured the important role of public libraries in the social infrastructure of a vibrant community.
Visit and support your local public library. Of course, I’m especially proud of the Lawton Public Library. But wherever we use and support public libraries, we are ensuring that our children and our children’s children know and love libraries as part of their culture.
And remember – September is Library Card Sign-Up Month.
