Being a good neighbor

One thing I love to do as a librarian is put up book displays. This month, as I gathered books on the theme of "Be a Good Neighbor," I found titles that really energized me and put me in a good mood. After all, the Samaritan spirit fills you with enthusiasm, goodwill, compassion and inspiration.

You have the ability to change the world. Whether your world is your city, your neighborhood, your circle of friends, your family, or within yourself, you can change it! All you have to do is choose to say yes to whatever is calling you.

Make a Difference in Local Transportation

During our Community Conversations, you told us that you care – a lot! – about transportation in Kitsap County. But it can be hard to know how to make a difference or have your voice heard. The Library can help you there! We’re always happy to help you find information about ways to make an impact on your community.

This month, Kitsap Transit is seeking your input to help develop their plans for the future. Until June 5th, you have several ways to weigh in with your opinions and ideas.
