Staying Hopeful With Movies

In January 2011, we received this anonymous letter from a library patron letting us know how the Library helped in his/her time of need.Dear Willa Cather Librarian:
Enclosed please find three DVDs as a gift to the Omaha Public Library’s collection. … This last year, I was mostly unemployed and beyond the UIC payment system without water to bathe, no heat in my home, no way to cook. … It was the libraries’ free movies that kept me hopeful to continue to look for work. So please, expand your DVD section as there are those in Omaha that cannot even afford the fees at Redbox, Hollywood Video, Blockbuster but still need entertainment to keep their spirits up and remind them of normal times without unemployment and this deep recession. God bless you all and hug your families!
