Letters to the Editor

Our public libraries deserve support | Letters | Oct. 15

I moved with my family this summer to Bainbridge Island from South Africa. We arrived a few months ahead of the new school year to get familiar with our new environment.

The library here has been our landing pad, offering us daily activities for the children, job seeker seminars, film nights, a place to read and work for a few hours outside of the home, reading incentives for the kids with their Summer Fair tickets, connection with older children reading to the little ones, and a beautiful garden to stroll through.

It has provided us with an enlightened and inviting place to begin connecting with our new community. You can imagine that I am delighted to take a first strike of activism in our new country by voting “yes” for Kitsap libraries.
