Libraries around the country celebrated National Library Week April 23-29, 2023. Libraries have long served as trusted institutions for all members of our community, and Indian River County has a thriving program with three libraries around the County, each with its own robust calendar of activities and variety of resources.
The BOCC recognizes the critical role libraries play in the economic vitality of communities by providing internet and technological access, literacy skills, and support for job seekers, small businesses, and entrepreneurs. Of course, libraries are also safe and welcoming environments for families to gather, study and even play together.
Planning for the community’s ever-changing needs is just one element of maintaining a dynamic library system throughout the County, and there is good news.
