Rachel E., 2017

I had just hurt my back really badly and could barely walk. With three little kids in tow, it seemed impossible to get in and out of the library. But I called and explained the situation, and [staff were] able to check the books out to me and even brought them out to my car. ...Over and over I am amazed at the friendliness and helpfulness of the WDM Library employees.
