Friends of the Library Scheduled for January 3rd

Residents of Winn Parish are invited to the second meeting of Friends of the Winn Parish Library, on Thursday, January 3, 5:30 p.m., in the Lawrence White Meeting Room at the library. This new community organization plans to support the library by raising money for additional materials and programs, through book sales and other fundraisers.

Some may think that in an increasingly digital world, public libraries are struggling to stay relevant. The Pew Research Center found just the opposite; communities continue to turn to libraries as sources of reliable information, as gathering places, and to promote literacy, especially among school-aged children. Of those surveyed, 85% “think that coordinating more closely with local schools in providing resources to children is something libraries should ‘definitely’ do.”
