"Libraries play an extremely important role in our community. This has been even more evident during the current COVID restriction period. Even though the branches were/are closed, PGCMLS made electronic reading materials, videos, and other forms of entertainment and education available through online sources. They continued their “Ask a Librarian” services. They redirected funds from purchasing hard copy books to electronic books to provide wider access to these materials. They also provided parking-lot accessible WIFI services to citizens who needed them."
