Library Opens Doors to Opportunities for All
(Warrenton, VA) January 6, 2020 – Business owner Mike B. has mined thousands of customer leads, and it hasn’t cost him a dime. How? By using Reference USA, one of many powerful resources available free from the Fauquier Public Library.
Over the next three months, success stories like Mike’s will be the centerpiece of Fauquier Public Library’s campaign to promote a variety of valuable Library tools and services.
“Every day at the Library, we see how people’s lives are affected by what we can offer them,” says Maria Del Rosso, Fauquier Public Library Director. “By sharing stories, we hope that more area residents will take greater advantage of the Library’s resources.”
The campaign will feature a variety of stories about opportunities discovered at the Library:
- Jada S. has improved her grades and gained confidence in the classroom thanks to free tutoring at the Library.
- Laurel G. takes the Library with her wherever she goes – from the soccer field to a family vacation – thanks to the MyLibrary! mobile app.
- David G. avoids exhausting daily commutes by using the Library’s free WiFi and workspaces.
- Renee Y. is never without something to read after a trained reference librarian showed her how to download library e-books.
“Opportunities for All is no exaggeration,” says Del Rosso. “With more than 228,000 items in our collection and 1,100 programs every year, the Library has a lot to offer our community.”
The campaign is made possible by a Technical Assistance Grant from the Path Foundation and generous financial support of the Friends of the Fauquier Library and the Library Board of Trustees. It was designed by The Ivy Group, an award-winning Charlottesville marketing firm with extensive experience working with public libraries.
