Prendergast Library officials have long known the library's role as a community resource is about much more than having computers or a lot of books on the library's shelves. It's easy to take the library for granted, but that would be a mistake, as is evidenced by three upcoming workshops. The first will be led by Bruce Gleason of Young Tax Service at 7 p.m. Wednesday and is designed to help people develop personal budgets. At 7 p.m. Dec. 18, Renee Shutters will talk about how food choices can affect a child's behavior, health and ability to learn. In January, a parent education course on attention deficit disorder will be hosted at the library by Ryan Smith and Alicia Johnson. At a time when non-profit budgets are shrinking, thumbs up to the Prendergast Library for finding ways to expand its role as a true community resource.
