Our mission is to connect our patrons with information – traditional and new media. Now, more than ever, libraries are becoming community centers, gathering spaces, and places not only for learning, but also for entertainment.

We'll explore our voices and refine written work through interactive group editing, and we'll end by sharing a celebratory meal we've prepared and stories we've created!
