Libraries Transform: Overview


I see a libraries as not just
a critical place for learning, but a critical place for community. One of the things that we love about working with our local libraries is how creative
and open they are to new ideas. So we’re doing a variety of programs with our library partners. Before I walked in to
the public library downtown I knew nothing about 3D printing. Completely shocked
when we went down there, especially with the final product. With the technology, I mean,
the possibilities are endless. I was unemployed
and needed help finding a job. So I heard about some programs
offered at the county library. I was surprised at the quality
of the workshops, the quality of the staff. The library was not
a place I thought of right away, but it turned out being
the best place for my job search. Being here has impacted my life
in a really big way. They taught me how to be more independent
and be able to advocate for myself. You guys have helped change my life. Libraries play an integral role
in the educating of our kids. These kids need something to open up their minds to. And it’s just a place
where they can come and take advantage
of all the opportunities that they offer here. With the new technology,
something other than just Xbox, he has an opportunity to help him when he graduates
and gets into the real world. Keep the innovation coming. Our kids benefit from it. This will affect their futures, and this is really what we need to make sure that our kids
are prepared with 21st-century skills.
