“I love this library so much! Does anyone ever tell you how great this library is? It’s totally helping me keep my job. I can come here and use a phone and a computer. It’s great! And I have to print out about 30 pages a week for work, and I can do that here too. Seriously, this library is like a family member. It’s like a sister- so familiar and helpful! Everything in this world is such a sad story these days. But not this library!”
