Letter To The Editor: Library Beneficial To Community
Dear Near North Now Editor,
I moved to Grant in sixth grade and everyday after school I would go to the library to wait until I was picked up. It was my go to place. The library was very beneficial to me because it gave me a quiet and safe place to do homework and wait for my mom to pick me up. It was not a problem if I did not have any homework to do either because
the library always had something to keep me occupied. Likewise, the library is very beneficial to all young community members and students because it gives them a safe environment to hang out after school. It is really the main hang out place in Grant. The staff there do a great job at having events and activities to keep the kids occupied. One of my favorite activities was the Thursday afternoon movies.
Furthermore, even though I have recently graduated from high school and Muskegon Community College and moved into a different state in life, the library is still beneficial to me and my community. I know many people whose only source of internet and printing is the library. The Grant Area District Library is their go to place for job hunting and a quiet place work place. That is vital to a healthy growing community. Many people would still be seeking employment if they had not been able to utilize the services the library has to offer.
Aside from these few things, the library offers many more actives and does a great job at keeping everyone involved. They are vital to the Grant Community.
