Every day, Wake County residents of all ages and backgrounds turn to their local library for education and entertainment. During the month of February, the Wake County Public Library System invites patrons to show their appreciation for their library by participating in the 2nd annual Read. Visit. Love. campaign, a community celebration of books, reading and public libraries.
Library patrons are asked to share their story about why they love their library on comment cards found in each library branch, through an online form or on social media using #lovewcpl.
"Whether it is teaching adults how to use new technology or providing story times for children, the library engages our community and makes sudden and lasting impacts on the lives of our residents," said Ann Burlingame, deputy library director. "For every person who has benefited from using the library, there is a story about what the library means to them."
People can also opt in to share their stories on camera to take part in a Read. Visit. Love. promotional video.
