Without Libraries Our Children's Education will Suffer

How is your library helping you in these tough economic times? Tell us your story.

The library is always there with books for our children to read and grow and instill new ideas. The library is always here for our seniors, who on fixed incomes after years of hard work enjoy the programs the library has to offer. I and my family would most certainly be devastated if any of the programs my library has provided would no longer be there to use. My daughter and I have used the New Jersey library system extensively. Our country as a whole has been downtrodden with the education of our young. As we as a country try to raise educated forward thinkers and leaders of the future, it would be extremely detrimental to cut any programs or funding for the library system. - Susan, Browns Mills

Libraries are so wonderful, now that I look back at my childhood, I feel weird, I never used them much. But they are a great resource and every parent should encourage their child to go their and read. Great for building concentration and reading skills.
