Learn the Ways You Can Help Support Your Local Library!!

The dos and don'ts of supporting your local public library seem fairly straight forward to me... However, in case one needs a refresher on this topic, check out the following article I discovered on Lithub's website titled, The Dos And Don't Of Supporting Your Local Library by Kristen Arnett. In the article, Kristen Arnett wrote the following:
Over the past few weeks, there’s been a flurry of “takes” on what people think we should do about libraries (one wildly bad idea was that they should be replaced with bookstores so people could pay 30 bucks per hardcover instead of paying their goddamn taxes and getting use of a community space). The response to these garbage articles was overwhelmingly in favor of keeping libraries open! Hell yeah. Let me tell you, though, there’s a lot more you can do for your local branch aside from posting a well-intentioned tweet. The thing about libraries is . . . we need you to use them. All the time. Get your ass to the library. This week I’ve compiled a handy lists of dos and don’ts so you can continue to support your libraries and librarians and library staff. I’m generous that way; you’re welcome.
Then Ms. Arnett wrote a list of top dos and don'ts for supporting your library. Click on the link to read what those are.
