NEWSLETTER               APRIL 2016

Dear Friend of the Public Library,

I hope that this letter finds you doing well. The fence challenge donation was met! Staking of the fence should begin soon and it may even be done in time for Dogwood! I am looking forward to seeing the result!

I recently read “The Paradox of Choice”, which I was able to borrow from the ebook selections available through OWWL2Go. It took me almost the entire loan period to work through, but I was reminded how enjoyable it is to read for even a few minutes a day. If you are not currently reading something, I encourage you to pick a new book for your nightstand or coffee table.

This semester I am taking a class on social inequalities and recently learned about the effects of disparities in access to educa- tional resources and cultural capital during childhood on adult outcomes. In Dans- ville, we are fortunate to have the public library as a community resource for all families. Through the provision of a vast supply of books, internet access and edu- cational programs, our library the serves a valued role in providing opportunities for learning which may not otherwise be available to some families.

Jamie Blum, President
