Fremont Public Library is has announced that it has joined the Libraries Transform campaign.

Libraries Transform is a public awareness and advocacy campaign that speaks to what today's libraries and librarians do for and with people, rather than simply what they have.

The goal of the campaign is to help libraries and librarians speak with a unified voice about the value of today's libraries, while also raising awareness for what modern libraries are about.

"The Fremont Public Library is more than a quiet place to study and check out books," Assistant Director Becky Ingram said. "Whether it is free internet access for low-income individuals, assistance with using a new technology device for seniors, or creative and educational programs to enrich young minds, our library engages every member of our community. It is a place where lives are transformed every day."

Some of the programs and resources currently available at the Fremont Public Library include streaming movies, music, audiobooks and more through Hoopla, a seed library, musical performances, art classes, movie screenings, telescopes, group study spaces, online learning and databases, and tutoring, all of which can be found in more detail at www.fremontlibrary.org.

To date, more than 2,700 public, school, academic and special libraries across the country and around the world have joined the campaign.
