"A lot of the library's elderly white neighbors have moved away over the past several years and been replaced by African-American, Hispanic, and Asian families. This area is definitely more diverse now, and that's a positive thing. More families are coming in, and more parents are staying with their children to help with homework, use the computers, and use the other resources here. We have programs for children, teens, and adults, and the collection itself is growing more diverse. We subscribe to an Asian newspaper and we're adding more materials by Hispanic authors. On Saturdays, our manager Scott runs an English immersion conversation group, which is a great way for non-English speakers to learn the language. We try to make this a welcoming place. I'm at the front desk, and I always try to greet the regular customers by name. I think they appreciate that someone knows them and is glad to see them. I've been here long enough to watch the neighborhood children grow up, have families, and bring their own children to use the library. When they come in, they always say, 'Ms. Connie, do you remember me?' and I do. I love our community, and I love this library."
