Why I Use My Library
My son Jacob and I have enjoyed visiting the library since he was about 3 or 4 years old.  We love to read, and the library has a great selection of books.  We also use the many CD-ROM's, videos and DVD's available.  Many times, when we were looking for a specific item, the very friendly staff at our library would request the item from another library, if it wasn't available at our library.  We also enjoy the many children's programs and activities offered to us.  My son has attended storytimes for many years, and now that he is older, participates in the after school reading activities, such as "Camp Read-a-Lot".  We really like the Summer Reading Program every year.  My son really loves the chance to earn a free book when the program is completed.  I enjoy the variety of books available to me.  With so many craft and gardening books published, I appreciate being able to borrow them from the library instead of having to buy them all.  I can decide which ones are my favorites and buy them if I want to later.  Jacob and I really like our library.
