I don't have to tell you how important reading is - you are visiting a bookstore website. Public Libraries, however, offer so much more than books. Public Libraries make literacy accessible. Public Libraries offer a level playing field of information for everyone. Public Libraries enrich our communities. From the grand halls of our own Boston Public Library (the first lending library in the country, of course) to the one room offerings in small towns across the country; librarians and patrons, reading tables and tall stacks, libraries are so much more than buildings filled with books.
