Day 4: Community Centers


Back to 15 Days of Giving

Check out your local library… It’s more than books!

At the center of every community you can usually find a public library.

More than just books and banks of computers, Middlesex County’s public libraries are places where individuals gather to explore, interact library buildingand imagine!  In an increasingly digital world, the role of libraries as community and cultural centers is that much more valued.  Out public libraries focus on inspiring and educating us about art, literature and music.

Public libraries are known for offering free access to books, magazines, newspapers and computers. But that’s not all a library is! Libraries loan eBooks for mobile devices, stock your favorite movies, and link with other libraries through the state’s interlibrary loan program.

Did you know that your local library is also a great place to connect with your community? Libraries offer a wide array of classes, groups and programs to match almost any interest. The serves are seemingly endless and connect neighbors and friends and are central to building our communities.

So check out your local library – you never know what you might learn!

There are many ways to give back to our community.
