Books, magazines, and digital materials inform, teach, inspire, change, and entertain us! We are so lucky to be in a community where we have access to such a fabulous library system!

I love my library! Because of some vision issues, I prefer large-print books. The Hennepin County Library has a good selection of large-print titles. I also take advantage of the classes and programs. I recently bought an ereader--but only after I went to the library's program on ebooks. I have also enjoyed the genealogy programs.

It is important because Monday through Sunday you can see people from all walks of life go into the library either to do research, listen to a story, check e-mail or just to have a relaxing time reading a magazine or the newspaper or just to look at a picture book in the children section. I am one of those thousands of people who walk into the building almost everyday after work.This is a very laid back place where you feel welcome and think to yourself, "Thank God there is a library in this community." Coming from a country where libraries are just for a few select group of people, I appreciate and admire the initiative taken by Mr. Benjamin Franklin and how the Hennepin County has devoted tax dollars to continue this philanthropical endeavor. Thank you so much for keeping the libraries open and for building more.

It is said that is takes a city to raise a child, and the hclib Library system is most definitely where I was raised. When my family was new in town, the library was where my mom found some warm, welcoming people that were some of her first friends. For me, the library was a place where I could go and learn about most anything in the world. The library was a place with great air conditioning to hang out at in the summer, where my mom would let me and my brothers loose to get whatever books we wanted. The staff always seemed to know us, and if they didn't they were always kind and soon came to know us anyways. Spending my summers here was what instilled in my a great love for books that persists to this day; I clearly remember the time when we hit the 100 item limit on our family library card. As I've grown, the library has continued to provide me with a wealth of opportunities including free classes, volunteering opportunities, almost any book I could ever want, and a persisting community that has filled my life with people I will never forget. I love my library!

The Nokomis Library is always busy. Newly renovated, it has become the heart of the neighborhood. I love having such a wonderful resource so close to home.

I love our libraries!!! Thanks for being there. We/I learn so much here and keep connected through the internet and my e-mail. I'm sorry the hours were shortened. How can we improve this? Also, I think we have grown in this community and definately need more computers. They are often busy and very much so when school gets out. Lots of kids here. Thanks so much for asking. I love our librarians here. They are so helpful and caring. Wonderful resources!!!

Before I had my own computer, the ladies at the library would help me use the library computers. It is nice to know that there are computers there for anyone to use. It seems there are always people there online. Now I pick up mysteries every week for my 87 year old mother and she so appreciates having books to read.

Because it has more books than I do.

I would be totally lost without the library because my favorite thing is reading. I would rather read than watch Tv.

Need more privacy screens, especially for the larger-screen monitors. Need the library to close 9 pm on Sundays for extra work and games.

I love having access to so many books! But I also really love that the libraries are a space for people to come for computer access, other information resources, events, and community events.

It provides a necessary positive outlet for our children VS the crime and negativity that the streets has to offer them..
