Enjoy the Smorgasborg!
Quote of the Day:
The library is like one big smorgasbord. It’s easy to pick up something and try it out.
It is a short article that does an admirable job of pointing out the value of a library to a community — and it even includes a link the Maine State Library’s really great library calculator — a really useful tool that demonstrates how much money can be saved by using a public library.
I also love this marketing idea that the Kenton Public Library will rolling out shortly:
In September, the Library offers cardholders even more value. Libraries in Kenton, Boone, Campbell and Grant Counties have joined with local businesses to offer a discount to anyone who presents a library card. This partnership was formed to encourage residents to use of obtain a library card. More than 50 local businesses including Snappy Tomato Pizza, Golden Corral, Sherwin Williams, Mad Cup Café, and Pawsitively Perfect Grooming understand the value the library provides to the community and local businesses.
