Libraries are more than just repositories of free reading material. They're community spaces where everyone has access to information of all types, be it on the printed page, from a lecture series or through a search on the Internet.
In times of economic struggle, public libraries are more important than ever as a way to give people who are struggling access to information about much-needed resources.
The opening of a new library is a happening, and today there is reason to celebrate.
The Lake Hazel Branch Library will host a grand opening and ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. today, featuring refreshments and music from students of the Christine Donnell School of the Arts. From 6-9 p.m., there will be an open house so people can get acquainted with the services offered by the library.
