Small Library, Big Heart

Ferguson Public Library
Ferguson, Missouri

During a time of unrest in the wake of Michael Brown's death, the Ferguson Public Library made it clear that they were keeping true to their mission and goals by providing their community with the services they need.

On Nov. 25 the library tweeted, "We are open 9-4.  Wifi, water, rest, knowledge. We are here for you. If neighbors have kids, let them know teachers are here today, too."

A widely circulated photo of a sign in the library is additional proof of Ferguson Public library's big heart. The sign read, "During difficult times the library is a quiet oasis where we can catch our breath, learn, and think about what to do next. Please help keep our oasis peaceful and serene."
