Our staff is the best!
On any normal day, about 300-400 patrons use the library. On Wed. Oct. 31, after Hurricane Sandy, 1682 people used the library. Each day of that week saw record numbers of library users. Almost every seat in the library was taken. People were sitting on the floor next to outlets to charge their cell phones and tablets. And through it all our staff answered questions, charged out movies and books, helped people in any way thay could, and all with a smile on their faces. They worked longer hours keeping the library open for people to keep warm. Some of our staff voluntered extra time to help out. Many people, appreciating this, thanked the staff. Some patrons donated coffee and tea to help us keep our coffee bar running. Thank you to them also. But the real point of this post is my appreciation for the great people who work in the library who give the best service they can every day. Thank you!
