Whereas, today's libraries and their services extend far beyond the four walls of a building and everyone is welcome to use their resources; and,Whereas, in times of crises, libraries and library professionals play an invaluable role in supporting their communities both in person and virtually; and,

Whereas, libraries strive to develop and maintain programs and collections that are as diverse as the populations they serve and ensure equity of access for all; and,

Whereas, to adapt to our changing world, libraries are expanding their resources and continuing to meet the needs of their patrons;

Whereas, libraries are cornerstones of democracy, promoting the free exchange of information and ideas for all; and,

Whereas, Williamson County is proud of its library and five community branches, the librarians and library workers are joining library supporters and advocates across the nation to celebrate National Library Week;
