Let everyone know what you like about the Headquarters Library! With budget cuts and greater community need, the
library has been here for you. Each of our public service desks at the Headquarters Library will have a display,
in honor of National Library Week, of patron comments and pictures telling and showing how the library has benefited him/her. Children, teens, and adults can ask for a form at each of our public service desks to fill out and add to this display. So, share with us and with the
community what it is you like about your library and show your support for this valuable community resource.
