Libraries are so much more than a place to find a good book. The library provides accessible technology, free opportunities to learn, and a place to connect with other community members. Libraries are essential to Trenton and other low-income communities. Research conducted by Pew Research indicates that lower-income communities are likelier to see libraries as community anchors and tools for advancement. Lower-income communities are also more likely to utilize libraries for career growth, learn new job skills, and access other essential services. A library has the potential to change lives, and now is your chance to learn all about what this community’s library can offer you!
