'Libraries also offer infinite potential'

The Gibson Memorial Library is embracing the limited library space we have to create, make, examine, imagine, compose and propose new ideas. A library is no longer defined only by the tangible materials it possesses. A book can help create memories, but libraries also offer infinite potential for dreaming, planning, discovering, growing and investigating. While a library is a fixed built environment, every visit and every interaction offers a distinctive experience.

When our library melds the legacy of its past with the possibilities of the future, it is both familiar and comfortable, yet novel and inspiring. Whether you visit to grab a cup of coffee, a crime thriller, or conversation with a friend, a library is incomparable in its potential to offer assorted opportunities to an equally varied group of people. Today’s libraries are truly community catalysts; they are designed to bring people together and as a result are transforming neighborhoods.

We want our public library in Creston/Union County to offer the novelty of space we currently don’t have and create activities in ways yet to be imagined. Please VOTE YES on November 5 for the library. That 2 million dollar bond will enable us to finish this important project so that the citizens of Creston and Union County can benefit from the additional space to host children’s events on-site, where there are connections to literacy and materials and for the library to help in the revitalization of Uptown Creston.
