Our family place library is one branch in a system of 26 branches. We are the first in our system and are setting the example for more to join us in the future. It has been a positive change for the community. We have mostly gotten favorable comments, such as; we stay longer and come more often; the children look forward to coming to the library and it is a wonderful, social, safe and fun place to be. The parenting collection is well used and the workshops fill up fast. Like everything, change takes time to adjust to, and the staff has done a magnificent job adjusting. First time visitors are amazed at how open, friendly, and exciting the library is and want to come back even if it is not their closest library.
