What is a “Library”? 

“The word “library” seems to be used in so many different aspects now, from the brick-and-mortar public library to the digital library. Public libraries—and indeed, all libraries–are changing and dynamic places where librarians help people find the best source of information whether it’s a book, a website, or database entry.”  –American Library Association


In addition to our library collection the Slater Public Library has additional resources available to its patrons.
