Families listening at the Avondale Library

"We love reading, but the library is more than just books. There’s a feeling of community here that you just don’t find at a bookstore. When we need information for a school project, we head to the library after school and talk to the youth librarian, who always helps us find what we need. Having all the answers in one, convenient place is pretty amazing."-- from a family
