I want the library to be open.
Maybe not all the branches and not in the typical library open way. Maybe just one branch in a county (or tight geographic area) and we should do something special. Something low-key, something relaxed.
Timberland does a kick-off for summer reading at the Olympia library each year. The building hosts a magic show, arts and crafts and other activities. Maybe we could host some sort of lower key, community focused event in a few libraries across the district. Live music, activities and maybe a Friends book sale.
Thanksgiving is the day that we get together with our families, maybe the day after should be the day we get together with our community.
