We promoted this branch as a green building, but it is of no use if people are not willing to use it. In working with the architects we considered how the patrons would be able to use the building and how it could make them feel comfortable and at-home. Here is an example of comments we have received from patrons using this new branch.
“the opening of the new eastern branch has been a terrific experience for me. i seldom went downtown and live close to bettendorf, so didnt go to Fairmont much- NOW i am at the library 2-4 times a week. I look forward to groups that can meet there also. it is beautiful has a very helpful and nice staff and many amenities.”
We look forward to seeing many new faces and hearing their comments about our new branch. Suggestions for new materials are also welcome!
