My visit to the Westerville Public Library was very inspiring and educational. The Director, Don Barlow epitomizes a Librarian who is passionate about what he does. This was reflected in the services offered by this library. The visit highlighted how much public libraries can become a vital part of the community’s life.
The various areas showcased the Library’s best and the pains it has made in reaching out and meeting the needs of all its customers. It struck me that even the children and older adults were excited about being at the Library. They were all caught up in the environment that the Westerville Public Library had created.
This Library is a good example for the Sustainable Development Goal # 11- Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
