You’d be mistaken in thinking libraries are about books. Anyone could easily create a room full of books and brand it a library, but they would be missing the point entirely!
My belief is that libraries are about people. The reason libraries exist are to offer reading, learning and knowledge to local people.
A young reader building their confidence, a job seeker applying for work, a retired person becoming digitally literate, families spending time together, students finding knowledge and a place to study. The list goes on…
Those at the centre of the service are the staff and volunteers. These are the people who are valued by their communities. They are supporters, champions and inspirers. They join the dots to ensure libraries can be personalised to each individual who walks through the door.
