During National Public Library Week thank Everett Libraries staff

This National Library Week, the Board of Trustees of the Everett Public Library System sends its deepest thanks and gratitude to the director and staff of the Everett Public Libraries.

We acknowledge that safe, welcoming public spaces are needed now more than ever while also increasingly subject to political and budgetary threats. Despite this, our library staff continue to make the Everett Public Libraries a thriving community hub for gathering, seeking information and services, and providing education, entertainment and enrichment.

Our library staff are trusted public servants, friends and neighbors. They offer a doorway to new worlds, and a safe harbor when the going gets rough; a springboard, and a safe landing place.

Our staff are a professional, educated workforce, seeking out continuing education opportunities and always striving to provide outstanding service to our members. They are experts in connecting our community to information and services, and they invest deeply in their work.

This year’s National Library Week theme is “Ready, Set, Library!” We encourage all our neighbors to engage with their local library this week, whether you’ve been a library patron for years, or will be a first-time visitor. Library cards are free and the library has many events and activities for adults and youths alike. Information on both can be found at our website, www.epls.org.

While you are there, make sure to thank your local library workers for their service to our community.
