As a business owner I know that libraries are part of the infrastructure of a healthy community. Libraries contribute to the workforce and economic development of the community with educational and training resources. Libraries are also essential to many job-seekers.

A thriving community needs healthy libraries. Libraries are an indicator of a community that values education and welcomes new business. Libraries are necessary to encourage skilled workers to remain in the valley as well as to promote new business and workers to relocate to Jackson County.

Support Jackson County libraries on May 20 by voting yes on Measure 122. — Scott Wolfe, Central Point
