me-2From Barb:

I am excited to have a webpage to inform our community about the great reading and viewing materials in our Crestview Library. All materials are available for checkout and the advantage is that there is no set date to return the books and DVDs. I just ask that you keep the materials for a reasonable time so that others may also use them. Also, don’t forget to fill out the cards in the pockets and place them in the file box. Happy Reading!
