Public Libraries Open Possibility

Public libraries are more than just buildings or icons or ideas—they are a wellspring of possibility. Unlike any other institution, public libraries have a unique and unparalleled ability to bring people and knowledge together. They fill communities with the vitality of learning. The joy of personal growth. The excitement of advancing with the times. As the needs of our communities change, libraries are right there beside us, continually opening new passages for anyone who enters. Because public libraries are and always have been where possibility lives.
