Little Bennett Public Library is so much more then the books on its selves. Like libraries across the the county, the role of ours goes beyond the simple services we offer the city of Bennett. A PublicLibraryOnline.Org online article illustrates the greater value of our organization. Some of the interesting ideas that makes a library special to a community were:
Libraries are important partners in sustainability.
Libraries help revitalize neighborhoods and communities.
Libraries’ special collections grow out of specific community needs.
Archives preserve historic artifacts, oral histories, digital history projects, and monographs relevant to the community, including minority groups.
Libraries are places where people come to know themselves and their communities.
Libraries serve as catalysts for addressing social problems.
Libraries, which champion, promote, and reflect important democratic values, are a part of the community’s political life.
Library buildings as architectural structures are culturally relevant.
Libraries provide important business resources, especially for small local businesses.
