Thursday Thirteen #17

Thirteen Things our county library system provides (until they close their doors due to lack of funding April 7, barring a miracle)

1. Books. Fiction, Non-Fic. Juvenile, Young Adult. Large Print. Espanol.

2. Audio books for the visually impaired, pre-readers or just to listen while doing something else--driving, knitting, jogging, walking etc. available on cassette, CD or downloadable for MP3.

3. Movies for VCR or DVD.

4. Music on CD

5. Periodicals: Magazines and Newspapers

6. Reference collections--Dictionaries, Encyclopedias Almanacs and more for consulting on site.

7. Weekly storytimes for young children and summer reading programs for kids are among the ways our community libraries encourage literacy which is necesary for a thriving economy and healthy democracy..

8. Outreach for the homebound--delivery and pickup of materials to those unable to get to the library due to illness, age or disability.

9. Access to the internet.

10 Computer literacy classes

11. Access to online catalog of library collections and dozens of databases for a variety of research needs.

12. Resources for homeschooling.

13. One-on-one help--get questions answered from a live librarian on site or by phone or email.

Yes, I'm obsesseed. And will be for the foreseable future. Barring a miracle. Even then, I will never take library services for granted again. Do you? How much do you use your library? What would those services cost you elsewhere?
