This is a common misperception. Use of our library has continued to grow every year, both in the number of people attending programs and people checking out books. Some people do prefer to check out ebooks from us, but print books are by far the most heavily used – especially for kids and teens.
Libraries have evolved to be places for people to meet, work, study and engage – as well as places to get books, movies, documentaries and more to be informed and entertained! Your neighbors use the library to get their young kids ready for kindergarten. Seniors visit for social interaction and to continue learning. Your friends want to use library spaces and amenities to attend meetings/events and to meet with others.
