Read – Learn – Dream – Innovate – Grow – Unite – Inspire
Are these values important to you? Do you agree that our community can use access to resources that support these values? Your gift to Three Rivers Public Library can make that possible!
These values and more are embraced and promoted by the Three Rivers Public Library.
On any given day, our staff could be found helping a jobseeker use technology they are unfamiliar with to accept a position, showing someone how to post a photo of an item that they need to sell to make ends meet, or hosting a program that is open to everyone and gives new members of our community a chance to learn new things, meet new people, and make friendships. We assist those that are struggling to find much needed resources and we help new readers find the books that capture their imagination. We point teens that are wrestling with their identity to stories that show them they are not alone and we offer a safe place for people to explore the world around them.
It is our privilege to meet our people where they are and we strive to connect each person to the books, technology, and resources that they need. We maintain a diverse collection of materials for just this reason. It is one of the few places you can come to with no expectations of payment. Anyone can walk through our doors to connect with others, to be alone, or to simply warm up on a cold day.
In our last fiscal year, we had over 90,000 visits to the library. The staff answered 17,304 questions. We hosted 597 programs with 6,680 people of all ages in attendance. Our patrons utilized materials and services that valued over $2.1 million dollars! And this year, we are already on track to beat this number.
As we are designing our new home in downtown Three Rivers, we are asking you to be a part of this exciting new chapter. Your donation will help us to continue to offer our community the space it needs to grow, innovate, and unite.
