What do libraries do?

When most people think “library” they think books. Yes, that is true, but books can take many different shapes, such as e-books and audiobooks. But we offer more than  just books, libraries are places of information, offering people free access to a wealth of information that they often they can’t find elsewhere, whether online, in print or in person. If you are looking for DVDs or the latest best-seller, health or business information found on internet databases not available at home, or going for story times and community programming.
