We love you, we really do
Tell the world you love us too!

Pardon the bad poetry, but I couldn’t resist. It’s National Library Week–the perfect time to tell the bigwigs how important libraries are to you! Libraries need support from the government to keep on keeping on. We need YOU to remind our state officials that libraries need their support. Here are some ways you can help: 

Let your state officials know how vital libraries are to YOU. Send an e-mail to  our state officials. In the big text box you can share stories about why libraries mean so much to you OR copy and paste the text under the “Action Alert.”  

Telling local officials helps too! Let the City of Carrollton’s city council know how much you love your libraries! Here are your council members.  

For more ideas, visit I Love Libraries–a website dedicated to keeping others informed on what’s happening in libraries. You can also put this badge on your website. Don’t forget to link to I Love Libraries!

We are ALWAYS happy to hear from you. Leave us a comment telling us why you LOOOOVE your libraries.  

OK, so maybe that’s a little extreme, but it IS National Library Week. You have 3 days left to thank a librarian or library worker for all of the things they do to give you access to books, movies, music, databases full of articles, computers, and more. All of that stuff you use for homework or fun…for FREE…from your local library. All you need is your library card.

Why I Love My Library TreeThe Carrollton Public Library is celebrating National Library Week by showcasing “Why You Love Your Library”. Check out the tree made up of leaves telling why customers love their library at either library location and read the online responses customers sent us.

It’s not too late for YOU to show us some love. Just fill out this form [link to form removed 5-27-08] to share how the Carrollton Public Library has helped you. Or stop by either location to fill out a leaf for the tree.
