Support your local library!

This project was a letter of support for Wallowa County's library, which in concert with nearly 70 other libraries provides interlibrary book borrowing, downloadable materials, online tutoring, and access to many newspapers. 

The letter combines information about the value of these resources with awareness of local concerns facing the council. 

The letter of support points out how library resources support local small business development and tourism, jobs, keeping young people in the county - all priority concerns for the council.

It demonstrates how one person used them to enhance a start-up business and save money in ways that allowed the "saved" funds to be spent locally or charitable activities such as purchasing food pantry bags from the local grocers for our "Community Connections" service, which also provides senior services.
