Thornton Branch Library is in need of brain power, financial support, voice power and board support.

Thornton Branch Library needs you! I believe in Thornton Library and because of that belief, last summer I supported Thornton Branch Library by doing a "Math is Fun" program for the children. This year I support the library to help keep its doors open for its maximum hours.

I do this is because I believe that God wants everyone to do what they can to help in times of need, and because I believe that Thornton Library does not only open its doors to educational opportunity but also to characterbuilding opportunities. For years I have seen past librarians and staff - Pearl, Sandy, Beverly and Tim - and present librarian and staff - Mark, Judy, Eddie and Julie - as architects who build good character qualities in these children, and good character builds good citizens.

I'd like to add that Mark is phenomenal. I've never seen a more kind and dedicated person when it comes to helping a child or an adult. Being the head librarian is not a job to Mark, it's a passion and a pride. I have friends from Lodi who come to Thornton because of Mark and his helpful staff. Words can't do Mark and his staff justice when it comes to dedication and loyalty to the library and its patrons.

Also, Thornton Library is a safe, healthy environment for the children. I believe that we don't just need to raise funds and support to help the library's doors stay open to its maximum hours, but that we must! We all know, because were all were kids once, idle hands lead to mischief, one day does make a difference.

During this budget pinch, I believe in donations, not taxation. I believe donations build a community in so many positive ways, whereas taxation burdens a community. I see a positive community-building spirit in the parents, grandparents and friends as they step up to the plate and do what they can. I see former county supervisor and catalyst for Thornton Library, George Barber, wanting to do all he can. Anyone else willing to help, please come to the library Thursday at 6 p.m.
