Grace’s Little Red Wagon (and Why We Still Need Libraries) by Dr. Paul DeMarco

In the Wednesday, May 30th edition of the Marion Star & Mullins Enterprise newspaper, there was an opinion piece called “Grace’s Little Red Wagon (and Why We Still Need Libraries)” by Dr. Paul DeMarco.
 
As the Marion County Public Library’s 115th birthday is quickly approaching, this is a very timely piece and he does an excellent job of highlighting why libraries are still important.
 
Thank you Marion County for standing with our library and making it more than a century-long success!
If you would like to read Dr. DeMarco’s article in person, please stop by any of the Marion County Library branches.
