What is Your Library Love Story?

book loveTexans love their libraries! According to a recent poll conducted by the Texas Library Association:
"An overwhelming majority of Texas voters say their public library is very important (79%, with an additional 13% saying fairly important) to their community and 90% are satisfied with their public library (including 72% who are very or extremely satisfied)."
But the numbers don’t always get to the heart of the story. Drop by the library to tell us your library love story!
