Loutit District Library has deep roots in the community we serve, and the stories you share with us about all the ways you use and are invested in your library move, inspire, and motivate us. You have told us how you use your library not only to borrow materials but to find employment, reconnect with long-lost friends and family, learn new skills and spend time with those you care about. Those stories should be told. One of our patrons wrote:
My mother loved to read and would regularly bring me to the library on Saturdays. She had a terminal lung disease, and I think reading helped her to cope and she encouraged me to read also. My mother has been gone for 40 years now, but I love to read and now bring my daughter to the library regularly. Thank you, Loutit Library, for the gift of books!
