by Beth Lokken, Youth Services Librarian, Door County Library
Do you think that all the library manages is books? Think again! Door County Library is also the gateway to an extensive array of community resources. Throughout all of life’s stages, there are people and organizations in Door County that are ready help, and libraries – and their librarians – are here to help you find them.
Door County Library is a member of the Door County Partnership for Children and Families: a group of local organizations that works together to support area families. The library’s biggest contribution to the group is to serve as the home of the Community Resources Page, which links to the websites of groups that provide a wide range of services, many of which are available without leaving the county. It can be hard to know where to turn for assistance when you need it, so start with the Community Resources Page at doorcountylibrary.org/community_resources.
Are you having an emergency? If you don’t need 911, you may find the help you need on the Emergency/Crisis page. Looking for lifelong educational resources? The Education and Childcare page links to options from birth through retirement. Need to know what kinds of health care are available nearby? Look on the Health page to find resources for mental health, dental care and physical health and wellbeing. Want to join a church or civic organization? We list those, too!
The Door County Library is here to help you find whatever you need, whether it’s a favorite book or a helpful life resource right here in the county.
