Placentia Library Director Message: Comfort and Joy (August 29, 2023)

Dear Placentia Library Readers,  


As the holiday season approaches, we wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for your ongoing support and participation in our library community. It is your enthusiasm and love for learning that make our library a vibrant and welcoming space for all. 


During this festive time of year, we reflect on the joy that libraries bring to people’s lives. They are not merely buildings filled with books; they are gateways to knowledge, creativity, innovation, and imagination. Our library is a place of endless possibilities where stories come alive, where minds are nurtured, and where connections are forged. 


We are incredibly thankful for your continued patronage, whether you visit us physically or access our digital resources from the comfort of your homes. Your engagement inspires us to go the extra mile, to curate diverse collections, and to provide innovative programs and services that cater to your needs. 


We invite you to take some time for yourself and indulge in the pleasure of reading. Allow the enchanting stories, insightful words, and our passport services to transport you to new worlds and open your mind to different perspectives. Embrace the power of literature to ignite your imagination and foster a deeper understanding of the world around you. There is a litany of books and library of things items for you to enjoy during this holiday! 


Remember, our library is not just a place for books; it is a community. It is a gathering of individuals who share a passion for knowledge, discovery, and lifelong learning. We encourage you to connect with fellow patrons, participate in our events, and join our book club. Together, we can create a vibrant and supportive network where ideas flow freely, and friendships flourish. 


This holiday season, let the library be your sanctuary—a haven of comfort and joy. Find solace in the pages of a favorite book, embark on new literary adventures, and relish the time spent with loved ones sharing stories and laughter. 


On behalf of the entire library staff and our library board, we extend our warmest wishes to you and your families. May the holiday season bring you joy, peace, and moments of respite. We look forward to serving you in the coming year and continuing to be your trusted companion on your literary journey.  


Happy holidays!
