Have you seen your library newsletter? Have you heard about the free movies? Have you felt the excitement of children on their way to storytime?

What should a library be and why should I support it? Go to the library:

Access published literature; get CDs, DVDs, books on tape and large print books; bring kids to the special children’s library; meet in rooms available for community events; attend special public events; search available research; use the Internet or Wi-Fi; or download library materials and audio books.

Libraries are vital components of Jackson County. Preserve this legacy for our children.

May’s book is “Talent is Overrated” by Geoffrey Colvin. — John Breckenridge, Bill Hicks and Cathy Edwards, all of Ashland
