Smith Endowment Fund to provide future funding for technology New Friends of NTL are successfully fundraising (plant sale, book & bake sale) to provide funding for museum passes and library programs
    • “Libraries are places that people go to for information. Books are only the tip of the information iceberg: they are there, and libraries can provide you freely and legally with books. More children are borrowing books from libraries than ever before – books of all kinds: paper and digital and audio. But libraries are also, for example, places that people, who may not have computers, who may not have internet connections, can go online without paying anything: hugely important when the way you find out about jobs, apply for jobs or apply for benefits is increasingly migrating exclusively online. Librarians can help these people navigate the world.” Neil Gaiman
