Gratitud Journal - March 8, 2021 Today, I am grateful for the public library system. While libraries provide access to a wide variety of books, typically free of charge, they also offer much more. Libraries are a gathering point for education; tutoring, group study sessions, and classes happen every day at libraries across the nation. Further, libraries often provide free WiFi and computer access to those who do not have access. Many libraries have programs to help the unemployed find work by allowing access to job search databases and websites and providing resume guidance and help. Finally, libraries lend much more than just books as many allow patrons to check out audiobooks, eBooks, musical instruments, and more. For this, I am grateful.
