I don’t use the library and neither do my friends. Why should we care about the library?

A public library is a bank of free knowledge. It uplifts and connects the community. Libraries
support communities of lifelong learners and help us enjoy the social and economic benefits
that learning brings. A library building also brings people to the downtown core, where they
spend money at nearby businesses. A beautiful, thriving library is a key for recruiting executive-level talent to the area, as prospective residents judge a community by the quality of its library. Studies show that one dollar spent on libraries translates to an average $3 to $6 return on investment.
