a meaning of "library" found in quotes

"Local librarians know the needs of their patrons and can guide them to the information that might be most helpful in their specific situation and where to look for it.... Libraries are the cornerstones of democracy, where all people—regardless of income, race and religion—are welcome. To me, they’re also the one place where I truly feel at home." 
from  I Found My American Dream at the Public Library...Daniela Petrova's Love Letter to the Library 


a meaning of "teamwork"

Some of you know how I like to share quotes from books I am reading.  This quote resonated with me:

" It is extraordinary when people put themselves aside for a team.  We're most likely to experience spiritual growth when we practice being selfless."

from River Hippies & Mountain Men: Adventures of a 21st Century Mountain Man by Patrick Taylor
 page 212I just happened to have gone to high school with Pat, which is why I chose to read his Mountain Man Trilogy.

Check out this tool on Ruidoso Library's Website

On the Ruidoso Library's Catalog, it asks if you would like to search other libraries (Left side - under Keyword & Results).  When you do - your only choice is Capitan Public Library.  Then it tells patrons if the book they are searching for is located at the Ruidoso OR Capitan Library. Capitan Library is the "Other" column.  Too Cool!
