Guest Column: We are here to brighten up your day

Kendra and her children have found extreme value in the Del Norte County Library.

The Del Norte County Library strives to provide programs and services to be of an impact and a bright spot in your day. Today, we thank our friend and patron, Kendra, for her kind words about our library. If you would like to contribute to our Library Love campaign by sharing your story with us, send us a message by writing us at; we would love to hear from you.

“Del Norte County Library has been such a resourceful impact on both my life and the lives of my children! When I had used the local bus transport in Crescent City, my children loved waiting at Front Street bus stop because they knew we would visit the library until the next bus came to take us home. It became our usual routine that brightened up my children’s day because they would get to play in the kids’ corner and pick out a few books to read until our next trip on the bus again. Also, while I was enrolled in online courses through Colorado Christian University in 2013, I would travel to the library to turn in assignments due when my Internet was down or when I needed to print out important information regarding assignments.”
