    I visited your library about 3 years ago and was most impressed by it. It was a very pleasant experience and all employees were very friendly and helpful.
    I am an employee (for the past 8 years) at Guyandotte Branch library in Cabell County in West Virginia. I hope to again visit your fine library in the near future. Keep up the good work.
    Sincerely Mary R Powers
