I love our community library; I have been very impressed by the changes in Bayfield's library including the community garden. Shelly Wallach would be a good resource on innovation. I admit I am not familiar with the newer or innovative things in Durango, yet I do try to read the Herald's articles on the library

I appreciate the way you accomodate special needs clients. I appreciate the use of the entry tables and the coffe shop. Compared with Denver libraries I think that you manage the homeless use of the library in a good way.

Simply put, I love the library. My one other suggestion would be to open membership (or "library card-ship") beyond La Plata County if that's not too much of a hassle. I love how welcoming & inclusive the Farmington, NM library is to non-area residents for access to their wide range of materials, classes & other programs. Thank you for all that you do!

I feel the e-book and e-audio selections have gotten much better in the last year. Lots of new releases. For several years, it was dismal. My family loves the library. The children's area and librarians are awesome!
