  Cara Burton   Our world had changed since 1964 when the Accomac library was built. We don’t need to “know,” we need to  understand.   How can we teach our children to do this without a community space with open access to learn, create, and share?  I returned to the Eastern Shore of Virginia because I like to walk down the street and say, “Hi, neighbor!”  Vibrant public libraries help us maintain that.  We are the place making connections.

  Jenny Baker   Libraries are as relevant as ever and the role of our regional library is  broadened because of the limited resources here on the Eastern Shore. It's our responsibility to be the stewards of our intellectual property and the collection in the Eastern Shore Room is the heart and soul of the Shore. This time now is our legacy opportunity.
