Libraries are resource centres for adults and children. The public can access or borrow books, audio books, music CDs, videos, CD-ROMs, newspapers and periodicals at their local library. Libraries are a community service that encourage reading, promote literacy, present video shows, run events, and provide holiday programmes for learners and story hours for toddlers. Small Business Corners at some libraries provide entrepreneurs with business advice literature.
