One week a year, we express appreciation and support for an institution is here to serve all of us 52 weeks a year.
National Library Week, as it applies to Sandusky, celebrates what is undoubtedly one of the things that elevates the livability of the area.
With libraries across the country closing for lack of funding, Sandusky's lucky to have a library that rivals those in big cities. The building itself is a thoughtfully renovated historic treasure. Solid and charming as the building is, the real value is inside its doors.
And the same can be said of the libraries in Huron, Vermilion, Norwalk, Port Clinton, Bellevue, Fremont ...
Library regulars need no persuasion to make use of this valuable resource. But many people in the area haven't stepped into a library since preparing for their high school term papers.
Our local libraries have within their walls the wisdom of the ages. Centuries of great minds have written down their musings so years later we can tap into their thoughts.
Anything you want to know is available at the library, be it how to cook, knit, fix your car or fix your life. And if you're not looking to improve your mind, at least tease it or entertain it for a while. With books, magazines, newspapers, CDs, movies and DVDs of classic TV shows, in addition to computers and Internet access, there really is something for everyone.And it's all free. What more could you ask?
Stop in. If you're new to your library, its well-informed staff will help you find what you're looking for or lead you in the right direction if you're just browsing.
