Just wanted to give the library customer service a shout out for kind and awesome service!

My card had expired, and I wanted to order books online. Normally I would just head to the library and renew the card, but I explained to the very helpful staff member that I had broken my ankle, could not drive, and have to rely on others to drive me places. I was frustrated that I would need to make two trips - one to renew the card, one to get my books that I had requested using the online card digital catalog. The staff member responded to my quandry by offering to give me a short extension so that I could make just one trip to the library (to pick up books I had ordered and renew my card).

I'm so grateful.

I love the libraries! Had a great time talking in Rio Rancho at the "Celebrating the Stories" event. (Authors love to talk about their books!)

I have been a long time patron of the public library. I got my card when I was 3 years old. I've been frequenting it more, using it as my primary study spot as well as a place to check out new movies and new music. I'm glad to see the latest bestsellers get into circulation so quickly. There is always great activities, speakers, storytellers, etc.

My one concern is at a few of the libraries I study at there seems to be a lack of "knowing" by some patrons of appropriate behaviors in the library. The "no talking zone" policies are posted, but I have seen little enforcement.
