Hey library lovers will you be our Valentine? Send your favorite library a Valentine’s day message at https://lovemasslibraries.com/
This event is made possible by the Massachusetts Library Board of Commissioners (MBLC). To quote their reason for starting this event:
“Here in Massachusetts, we LOVE our Libraries. Massachusetts Libraries play a vital role in ensuring all residents have equal access to information. Libraries are meeting places, community centers, and resources for everyone. During our busy everyday lives, we don’t always get a chance to let our libraries know how much we care about them. And we rarely take the time to share that with our state legislators.
Why do you love visiting your library? What critical service does it provide to you or your family? Let us know and we’ll share it with the library community, and equally important, with the state legislators.”
Support from users like you is so important, not just for us, but for all libraries. If you are located outside the state of MA you can still fill out a letter. Or, check in with your local library to see if they have a similar initiative. Most likely they do!
Thank you to everyone who participates in this event. Don’t forget to use #librarylovers on social media if you share the link or this post. Most importantly though– don’t forget that we value each and every one of you, whether you write a letter or not. We hope to see you in here soon!
