Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Support your public library!  It is a treasure and a legacy that will provide entertainment, information, a sense of community, and real continuity from one generation to the next, and the next after that.  So long as we keep reading, and reading to our children, there will be hope for our shared cultural heritage and the future of our world.
