Glad to have a location relatively close by even if it isn't as grand as other locations. I'd even say that having an old school library that does its job is a nice contrast for kids used to 24/7 high tech and vaulted architecture. This branch has a nicely stocked children's section but not as extensive as other locations. I appreciate that kids seem more behaved here than say, a retail bookstore, where kids commonly destroy unpaid books. Still, if I really need a book, I order it online before going and when I get the email, I pick up at my convenience: http://www.afpls.org/. My City of Atlanta taxes ($321 yearly) are paying for the library, so I use it more than a big box bookstore. By the way, your child can apply for his own library card!
A little confusing with the online renewal system-- couldn't figure out how to find my account. Would have never thought to look under " library cards" if not for a phone call. The girl that I spoke with was great and gave me the necessary info to save me a trip to ;the library...super nice kid with great patience with a "computer illiterate " bibliophile such as myself. So...keep up the good work and thanks for everything. Sincerely. Mossthhoss
