Friends of Libraries Week
Whereas, Friends of the Elkhart Public Library raise funds that enable our library to move from good to great — providing resources for additional programming, much needed equipment, support for children’s summer reading, and special events throughout the year;
Whereas, the work of the Friends highlights on an on-going basis the fact that our library is the cornerstone of the community providing opportunities for all to engage in the joy of life-long learning and connect with the thoughts and ideas of others from ages past to the present;
Whereas, the Friends understand the critical importance of well funded libraries and advocate to ensure that our library gets the resources it needs to provide a wide variety of services to all ages including access to print and electronic materials, along with expert assistance in research, readers’ advisory, and children’s services;
Whereas, the Friends’ gift of their time and commitment to the library sets an example for all in how volunteerism leads to positive civic engagement and the betterment of our community;
Now, therefore, be it resolved that the Elkhart Public Library honors October 20-26, 2013, as Friends of Libraries week, and urges everyone to join the Friends of the Library and thank them for all they do to make our library and community so much better.
