President's Message

" Each of us, no matter what our role in the library, has the power to make positive change every day.  We have the research skills to identify and address community needs. We have the opportunity to make each interaction with the library memorable.  We have the creativity to design experiences that make visitors say “Wow!”  Through continual reinvention and reinvigoration of services, libraries are able to connect people with information, with each other, and with current technologies.  And when we are passionate about the subject we are teaching, our enthusiasm has a tendency to inspire others..."
