Letter: Schoen, I love the Fraser Library

Letter of Thanks

I love the Fraser Library

I know many of you love the library just as I do, for so many reasons. So much goes on there and it is such a GREAT resource for the community. You run into friends, you can participate in activities that take place there, some key community meetings happen at the library, not to mention they have access to almost anything you are looking for by networking with other libraries, so we get the best of all worlds in our special community library.

What I didn’t know is the other services they provide to those of us in the community over and above the function of a library. My “senior” bridge group lost their space where we have played for many years and we wrongly assumed that we could simply find other space in the senior center to play since we are local seniors. The cost for us to play there was so high there was no possible way we could afford the space. Thinking we had to disband our group, I was lamenting about how sad it was that we were no longer going to be able to offer this activity to this group of seniors when a staff person at the library overheard me speaking to my friend, and went out of her way to advise me their meeting room was available and they would certainly try to accommodate this group as it benefited the seniors who live and play here as well as the community. WOW, they made the process so simple, and were so considerate, working with us to use their reservation system, trusting our group to take care of their meeting space and being truly engaged in helping our group maintain this activity.

After spending more time there, I found out they offer SO MANY ways to use their meeting room, birthday parties, special meetings, HOA meetings etc. and so on, anything that benefits the community. What a WONDERFUL resource for our community, and a special THANK YOU to the staff there who made it possible for our senior bridge group to continue.
