Please visit the library for books, research needs, or for a quiet place to study. I also feel that reading is very important and the only way to become a better reader is to read. My philosophy is that there is a book out there for everyone. Stop by and let me match you with a book you will love! You can reach me Monday-Friday by e-mail from 7:00 a.m.. to 2:45 p.m. at email@example.com. Or stop by the library
