As I was driving along a few days ago I heard a "Coffee Time" caller tell the host that he, the caller, knew he was right because he had looked up the information at the library. This reminded me of how lucky we are to have a great library here in the Park Rapids area.
For 100 years we have been faithfully served by this fine library, great staff and marvelous Friends of the Library volunteer group. We have all benefited from this library. As children we went to the library for help on school work, as adults we still use the library for research as well as for reading material. The library provides the community with books, audio materials, computer on-line access and quite places to read and study.
The Park Rapids Public Area Library will celebrate its 100th anniversary on Sept. 23 with an open house, refreshments and tours. Plan to come on that date to join the celebration. Remember to thank your librarian staff and volunteers everyday for 100 years of dedicated service to the community.
