Washington County Free Library will celebrate the centennial anniversary of its charter by emphasizing literacy in the community, the library's director said Tuesday.
That means making sure community members not only can read, but are technologically literate, said Director Mary Baykan.
"The library's mission is to make sure no one is information-poor because they don't have the technology readily accessible to them," said Baykan in her office at the 100 S. Potomac St. library.
Next year, several programs at the library will stress the importance of reading and being able to communicate technologically so patrons have marketable skills, she said.
