“It has been proven many times that libraries have a profound impact on the communities they serve,” said Library Director Giovanni Tairov. “For over 75 years, the Library has served this community through its programs and collections. Our library system was organized and implemented by the community, for the community. We are extremely proud of the growth, accomplishments, and connections we’ve made during the past seven decades, and look forward to deepening those connections through a series of themed events and programs over the next several months.”
Themed Programs and Events
Over the next several months, YOUR Library will host various community-centered events aimed at positively impacting the community. Each event will be tied to a monthly theme and will feature components that reflect the interests and backgrounds of our growing parish.
For example, October’s theme is Find Your Family. In honor of Family History Month, we’re focusing on genealogical topics and family events.
