There’s a lot more to libraries than just books, like bunnies – cute, cuddly, soft and oh-so snuggly bunnies. On Thursday, the Dixon Public Library welcomed some furry little friends to the library for its April Family Event, which gave guests a chance to make spring-themed crafts and visit with the bunnies, courtesy of Steve Upstone of Dixon, who raises show rabbits. The fair is just one example of how libraries are reaching out to connect with the community, a central focus of this year’s National Library Week, which runs through Saturday. This year’s theme is Libraries = Strong Communities, which highlights libraries’ role in helping people not only learn but connect with one another.
