Libraries = strong communities. The central theme for this year’s National Library Week couldn't ring truer. Library workers routinely take on roles that go far beyond their traditional scope of work, meeting customers where they are, and tending to the unique needs and growth of the community. On any given day they are caregivers, career coaches, tutors, IT supporters, social workers, and more. 

We are continuing our celebration of all the wonderful things Library workers do for the community with our Library Love series. We distributed love notes from customers to Library workers and had them read the notes on camera without seeing them beforehand. The results, much like the workers themselves, are priceless. 


Follow us on social media @cincylibrary on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook and use #MyLibraryMyStory and #NLWD19 to share your Library love story. You can view the first installment of this series here
