Why should our library do programming?

Posted on February 26, 2009. Filed under: library | Tags: |

Libraries are many things to their communities. They offer the practical information people need to improve their quality of life and to increase individual options in a complex society—information about health, education, business, child care, computers, the environment, looking for a job … and much more.

Libraries also give their communities something less tangible, yet just as essential to a satisfying and productive life–nourishment for the spirit. Programs in the humanities encourage people to think and talk about ethics and values, history, poetry, and other cultures that are integral to the library’s mission.

Such programs help to illuminate the experiences, beliefs, and values that unite us as human beings. They stimulate us to make connections where we noticed none before–between our ancestors and ourselves, between one culture and another, between the community and the individual.
