Even closer to home – like, right here at Neill Library – there is yet more reasons to say “thank you.” If you’ve been to the children’s area you’ve seen the wonderful fire engine book case. Local Union 1892 members built this for our patrons several years ago. A fine gift, indeed! I can’t count how many times, on a daily basis we have kids of all ages sitting in the engine, enjoying book after book.
And in that fire engine bookcase are DVDs and books related to firefighting and fire safety. They’re so popular, it’s challenging to find many on
the shelf at one time. But, not for long. And here’s another reason to say “thank you.” Local 1892 members recently donated $500 to purchase more books and DVDs for this well-circulating collection. WOW! So many thanks for so many reasons.
So, in celebration of National Fire Prevention Week, make it a point to thank one of our local firefighters. Thank them for their service and their ongoing generosity to the library. What a difference they make to us all!
