Public libraries today are about so much more than just books – they transform lives.
More than a quarter of U.S. households don’t have a computer with an Internet connection. Libraries provide free public computers with Internet access, vital to people searching for jobs and trying to connect with government services. At Ritter, the public uses the Internet more than 120 times a day.
Learning to read is the first step to success at school and libraries help parents get their little ones off to a good start. More than 800 participants enjoy programs every month by Ritter’s youth services staff.
Every day, libraries help people find jobs, by connecting them with important resources and helping them prepare resumes. The public can schedule free, half-hour appointments with Ritter’s reference staff for one-on-one assistance with questions about resources, technology and more. Call 440-967-3798.
