We got some glowing recommendations for our libraries from Patch readers along with their nominations.
Patch reader said, "The McClay Library is my special, friendly, home-away-from-home. Besides picking up books, I can always count on McClay staff and other patrons to pick up my mood, if need be."
"Kathryn Linnemann," said Patch reader . "The staff is very helpful. The facilities are new. The drive-up window is a great resource when i have my young daughter with me."
said, "I love the Winghaven Library! It has great staff and is very user friendly."
"Kisker Road Library is always helpful and a great resource!" said . "Love the ladies at the Reference desk. So very helpful and always willing to go out of their way to assist in anything asked of them!!"
"Middendorf-Kredell Library on Hwy. K gets an A+ from me. The employees and volunteers are a very knowledgeable and helpful group. I've been going there since they opened and I have never had a bad experience. I go so often that some of the employees call me by my name," said .
"When my grandchildren were younger we went there every chance we could. They always enjoyed the craft classes, which were very well organized. When they played with the 'learning' toys in the Childrens Area I could see their little minds working.
"I think the O'fallon area is very lucky to have the library that we do.
said, "The Deer Run Library in North O'Fallon is small but they have alot going for them the staff is always helpful and friendly. They are always willing to help, and immediately stop what they are doing to help a patron, Through the use of transfer services, online services and other techinal help available this staff meets the needs of the patrons of North O'Fallon in a friendly, quick and efficient manner. Thanks for all you do."
