  1. Libraries serve the disenfranchised.
  2. Libraries are a gathering place.
  3. Libraries are a first step to literacy.
  4. Libraries are there for all ages.
  5. Libraries help people use the internet.
  6. … And libraries help people use the internet better.
  7. Libraries are interested in your privacy.
  8. Libraries are hubs for preserving the past.
  9. Libraries are there in a crisis.
  10. Libraries offer the human touch.
