Public, school, academic and special libraries need your support to survive. Here are a few ways you can help yours: 

Visit your library.  Get a library card. Follow your library on social media. Volunteer if you can. Join your library’s Friends group.  If your library doesn’t have a Friends group, talk to your librarian about how you can start one or get involved. Visit to learn more.
