Summer reading isn't just for children – at least not at the Ruth Enlow Library in Garret County. Last summer the library tried a pilot Adult Summer Reading program that saw 166 people sign up and 66 of them turn in reading logs at the conclusion of the program. With plans for this year's summer reading programs underway across the state, a synopsis of what happened in Garrett County is included in this month's MLA newsletter, The Crab.
In response to some of the expressions of concern she is hearing about the challenges facing our communities, our nation and our planet, Maryland Library Association President Denise Davis is optimistic! “When so many feel increasingly powerless and fearful, libraries are expanding outreach deeper into the whole community,” she reports in her latest President's Message in the MLA newsletter, The Crab. According to President Davis, by moving beyond the voicing of disagreement into action, libraries are working within communities to solve problems. The CRAB newsletter is published by the Maryland Library Association and is one of the many benefits of MLA membership.
