The Foundation For Lincoln City Libraries has a mission this summer. Not only do they want to keep the public reading, they want to keep them engaged in city library resources.

"Libraries are the engine of civilization. Libraries are a place where knowledge exists and is easily accessible to everyone," says Herb Schimek, Foundation For Lincoln City Libraries Board Member. 

Studies show that people are accessing books more and more through mixed media, so city libraries have invested in getting tablet and audio versions of popular books.

"For a lot of people when they think libraries they think books. And we know libraries include a lot more," says Library Director Pat Leach.

In addition to over 800,000 hard copies, they have a collection of about 10,000 audio books, which are free to rent with a library card.

The "Libraries Are More Than Books" campaign kicked off Monday, and will last through the end of the year.

To spread awareness on the importance of city libraries, local community members are sharing testimonials on what libraries mean to them.
