People are talking . . .

A new discussion thread on the Calhoun Falls Today website has lots to say about the good things happening at the Calhoun Falls library. Someone pointed out the thread to me yesterday, and I was pleased (though not surprised) to see all the good things people are saying about their local library. Here are some of the comments:

"It took me 17 years, but this summer I have been introduced to the wonderful world of the Calhoun Falls Library. I've been in several times now and am very impressed with this opportunity right here in our community. Ms. Lois Rhodes is a very knowledgeable, friendly and quite helpful librarian--and no, I'm not saying that because we have the same last name. I encourage everybody to take advantage and come visit. It's even free! If only they would put in a smoothie and cappuccino maker it would be the ultimate Internet cafe."

"I like how you think....I would live at the library if I could get my caffine too!!!!!"

"I totally agree with you about the CF library. Until last summer, when I began taking my son to story time every Wednesday, it had been many years since I had visited. [My son] enjoys the stories and crafts that Ms. Land shares with the kids each Wednesday. He also loves to "pay" Mrs. Lois for the books and dvds we check out each week and I love the fact that he thinks I'm "buying" him prizes!! I also love seeing our young people and teenagers taking advantage of the computers and other great services the library provides. Our library has a really great atmosphere and I'm thankful that it is a part of our community."

We're proud of Lois Rhodes and all the good things happening at this community-oriented library. And if you haven't been by the Calhoun Falls library lately, plan to stop in for a visit soon!
