"A variety of services that cater to so many community needs."

Washington Square is Monica Bennett’s neighborhood library, a place she frequents when she can, but not as often as she’d like. A woman who loves to walk, health problems now limit her. Yet she continues to enjoy KPL’s “variety of services that cater to so many community needs.”

A voracious reader, Monica discovered the books-by-mail service through the library’s outreach services department two years ago. One phone call gives her direct access to KPL’s entire repertoire of books, which she requests three to five at a time. She keeps a constant vigil for new books, asking friends about their latest favorites. And she says reading is a great source for new titles. “Newspaper articles and reviews, best-seller lists and inside jacket covers are terrific sources for books by favorite authors,” she says.
