February is Library Lovers’ Month, a celebration of libraries of all types. Our mission as librarians is to provide our communities with assistance and access to the resources and knowledge they need to attain career and life goals. As a result, patrons will leave the library with the information-seeking and evaluating skills that will help them to thrive in their careers and life in general.
The Library offers reference and research assistance. Any time, as a researcher, you feel “stuck” while researching a topic, or if you simply do not know where to begin, please do not hesitate to ask the librarian(s) for help.
The library can also give its patrons resource assistance. If you are confused about how to find full-text articles in the subscription online databases, or how to locate books, or how to use the online library catalog, the librarians will be happy to show you. Please ask them.
Library staff can also help patrons overcome technological glitches or simply educate them about “how to do” something. We are here to help, so please ask for help if you need it.
Your library is your information hub. It gives you the ability to make informed decisions by promoting access to information. The growth of computer networks links you to your library and many of it’s resources on demand. It also offers long-lasting connections to your community.
How does your library help you? If you don’t know, stop by and find out!
