Earlier this year, the staff did some brainstorming to come up with a motto.
I guess we haven't had one up to now.
We had a dozen or so that we all kind of liked, and the one that came out on top was this: "Read. Connect. Discover."
That seems to be what our library is centered on here in 2014. We will never stop encouraging people to read. Reading is fundamental to learning and fundamental to democracy. In today's world, connecting is also fundamental as we as individuals expand our definitions of community and neighborhood, thanks to digital technologies. And through reading and establishing connections, we discover new things more now than ever.
