In general, public libraries are awesome and my local one – the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library – is no exception. They have an entire floor for children which is always attractively and imaginatively decorated. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. They even go so far as to pack travel bags of books for you to take on vacation!
The only area I’ve found them lacking is in their collection of business books, but they are always willing to obtain what I need via inter-library loan, so even that “problem” is easily solved.
As good as they are, when I received the following email today, I had a good laugh at their expense. Do you think the people attending this class really got the message? Remember, I received this message via EMAIL!
