Library Fosters a 'Strong Community' Throughout April

April 2, 2019

During National Library Week from April 7 to 13, 2019, the Martin County Library System (MCLS) urges everyone to experience its enriching services. This year's theme, "Libraries = Strong Communities," illustrates how today's libraries are at the heart of our community to provide critical resources, programs, and expertise. They also provide public spaces where all community members, regardless of age, culture, or income level, can come together to connect and learn.

MCLS depends on feedback from the community and invites our library users to share their opinions via our Annual Satisfaction Survey beginning April 8. The survey will be available in both print and online formats. Coinciding with National Library Week is National Volunteer Week, during which MCLS will highlight the contributions of our active and dedicated volunteers via social media.

For those that have not been to the library in a while, we encourage visiting our idea labs. These energetic, interactive spaces offer technology ranging from digital cameras to sewing machines, and much more! Residents have the opportunity to upgrade library cards to a free idea lab card and take advantage of the state-of-the-art offerings. During our "Caring For Fines" campaign, from April 22 to April 29, MCLS will cancel overdue fines with a donation of immediate/continuous needs items for SafeSpace shelters (visit or call the library for additional information and a complete list of items).

Be part of a strong community by allowing us to inform, inspire, and connect you!
