Letter from Lance: What Does the Library Mean to You?


One of my favorite things about the library is that it means different things to different people. We literally offer something for everyone.

For some of you, the library provides entertainment. You check out an endless supply of books and watch movies through our Kanopy service. You love trying out all the cool things in our Beyond Books collection. PerkPass is your favorite KDL offering, and your calendar is filled with KDL programs to attend.

For others of you, the library is a place to better yourself. You use our computers to create a résumé and our free printing service to make copies. You get work done in our branches. Maybe you graduated from our Career Online High School program.

For others of you, the library isn’t really a place, it’s a website. You may never step foot inside our buildings, but love using our online offerings. You read ebooks and listen to audiobooks. You utilize our online databases.

Maybe the library is a gift you give your children. You visit our play spaces and attend Storytime every week.

We see some of you daily, others weekly, and some of you we only see a couple times a year. No matter what you are looking for within our walls or on our website, we hope you find it. We want every single one of you to feel respected and accepted. No matter who you are, you are welcome here.

Warm Regards,

Lance Werner
Executive Director
