Why I Love My Library – Check Out These Videos!

Why Do You Love Your Library? We Asked – and the Community Answered!

We asked people to let us know why they love their library and the response has been amazing! So we started an ongoing project to videotape people from the community who wanted to share their library stories.

To launch this project, the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County has a series of initial videos now available on the Library’s YouTube channel.

The videos have all been compiled into a YouTube Playlist called, “Why I Love My Library.”

These are just the beginning! More videos will be added as the project continues.

The videos posted on the site today include participants such as: Aimee Fifarek, Library Executive Director; Youngstown Mayor Jamael Tito Brown; Anthony Traficanti, Mahoning County Commissioner; Justin Jennings, Youngstown City Schools CEO; Randall Fleischer, Youngstown Symphony Music Director;  Jason Whitehead, Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority CEO; Bill Lawson, Mahoning Valley Historical Society CEO; Rev. Lewis Macklin, Holy Trinity Missionary Baptist Church; Rich Morgan, retired from WKBN TV; Madonna Chism Pinkard of WFMJ; AC and Kelly from HOT-101; Ryan Martino of Martino Motorsports; Patricia Sweeney, Mahoning County Health Commissioner; Lynette Arroyo, Spanish Evangelical Church Secretary; Frank Tuscano, owner of Pressed Coffee Bar and Eatery; patron Denise Stewart; Struthers Mayor Terry Stocker;  John Muckridge, Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley CEO; Joe Shorokey, Alta Care Group CEO; and more.

Have a look at the videos and see why others love their library. Maybe you’ll see even more reasons the library is here for you!
