Gone are the days when libraries were silent sanctuaries.

Today's public library is bustling with activity. It's a place where patrons interact with other creative, fun-loving people who share their common interests. Free information or pleasure reading is available in many formats including DVDs, magazines, and electronic resources. Dozens of databases offer foreign language courses, tax information, government services, and medical advice that can be easily accessed at the library or from you home computer if you have one.
