As a librarian and especially at this time of year, I think about how lucky our county’s residents are to have access to free libraries. I grew up in a family that valued libraries. I do not remember a time when I did not use a library regularly. My family did not own many books, instead we borrowed our reading material from the public library. My mother always told me that I would only read the book once, so I should borrow it instead. Yes, she was correct and even now space on my bookshelf at home is restricted to a few books that I truly treasure.
The Adams County Library System offers a wide variety of materials on a wide variety of topics. The library system works diligently to provide library materials and programs to meet the needs and interests of all county residents. Freedom of information is key to our vision of every life fulfilled.
