WHAHOO! Mostly I stopped paying for my internet/cable package cause TV rots your brain and I realized I could get the internet at the library for free. And the WDM library lets you have 4 hours of internet and the downtown library only lets you have 1. So my choice was clear. Also, the WDM library has a prettier view from the windows, and it has more windows. And if you walk to it it's a pretty walk :-)
