Here where we live in Palmerston North the city library is described as the “living room of the city”. I think libraries are much more than that. My view is that libraries are magical repositories of the universe, full of the beauty, the passion and the life of humankind. Librarians and libraries are critical pieces of the community, supporting growth of both individuals and groups, and are essential pieces of of our cities and towns. Libraries are cool, lets be thankful and supportive of our libraries.
