Share Your Library Story

A life-long library user, Jack D. says that Edwardsville Public Library is “the best place in town to get my research and information on a subject”. He knows that he can look things up on the internet, but he prefers sitting down with a book in order to gain more understanding on a given subject.

In addition to using the library for research, Jack also enjoys finding novels that he can read in his spare time. “I do a lot of browsing at the library, in the stacks, in the New book section and in other special spots.” Jack never leaves the library empty-handed. After browsing the stacks, his tote bag is filled with a little bit of everything: mystery, fantasy, science fiction, and his non-fiction research endeavors.

Jack suggests that the library continue to “keep on doing what you do best, filling people’s prescriptions for new books.” He sees the library as a place to get your questions answered. “I am not sure other people know how much help is available.”
