Why We Love Our Patrons
Answering the enormous depth and variety of topics of patron's questions for over 20 years has made me great at trivia. I learn with them!
Our patrons treat us like stars. We are often greeted outside the library with instant recognition and a friendly hailing of “Hi! Library Lady!”.
Our patrons are one of the reasons that I enjoy coming to work everyday. They are the best. They have enriched my life.
Patrons make us feel like part of their community. We know they care for us when they stop to chat or bring us homemade goodies.
It's never a dull day at the library. Every question asked equals a learning experience for us as we assist our patrons discover the answer.
I love the enthusiasm the children show for the books and the way they love to decorate the children's room with their wonderful artwork!
We love to see the excitement the children express when they race into the library heading towards the children's room.
Reader's advisory goes both ways. Our patrons are great about helping us discover a new book or author by sharing their great reads with us.
Our patrons' love for books and learning is positively infectious. Whether anticipating the release of an old favorite or discovering a new one, I get excited right along with them!
