In the month of hearts and roses, it doesn’t hurt to let the library know you love them, too.
And libraries do need love. Public libraries receive 85% of their funding from local sources; however, most people mistakenly believe that nearly 60% of the funding comes from non-local sources. This can create a lot of confusion as library-loving voters and community members just assume that all is well with their library, unaware of the reality of how libraries are funded and operate.
We’ve been asking our patrons to tell us this month what they love about the Berryville Public Library and encouraging them to look to the future and let us know what they look forward to seeing in a new facility.
So, what do you love about your library? Tell us in the comments!
