  • Have you ever wondered why God created us to be in families?  Couldn’t God have just grabbed up some dust in his hands, smooshed it around a little and formed each of us just like he did in the beginning? 

    While this is entirely possible, that isn’t the path that God chose. Rather, God chose for humanity to find its root in family.

  • Resources can be limited in small communities like Carroll County. Over the years, I have begun to understand that partnerships really help strengthen the foundation of many organizations. One of the great things about our community is how we can come together when needed. This can be in the face of adversity or rallying around a good cause. Partnerships have been the cornerstone of the Carroll County Public Library for many years.
