The typewriter's dad served on the Livonia Library Board for 20 years. Mom would always see that we had books to read on summer vacations. Today I read a book a week and wish I could read more.
No wonder my views on the Bennett Civic Center Library are so strong.
In an increasingly digital world, this typewriter sees the role of libraries as community and cultural centers which at times are undervalued.
Public library services focus on building community face-to-face, inspiring and educating patrons about art, literature, and music, and helping patrons engage in civil discourse.
The increase of technology on life, as shown in the above picture taken by Paul Joyner Photo, makes a public library with its cultural and community offerings more important than ever.
David Morris at the time was co-founder of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance argued for the value that public libraries bring to their communities. "More than just books and banks of computers, libraries are still places where individuals gather to explore, interact, and imagine."
Appreciate our Bennett Civic Center Library.
