"You are definitely leading the way in what libraries should be."
I brought my children here from London after I had toured your Central Library a few months ago. I knew my children would have a fabulous time exploring the wonderful technology you have to try out - and I wasn't disappointed. Your staff were absolutely terrific helping us with getting library cards, booking time on the virtual reality station, and using the 3D printer. We all had a blast!
Throughout the whole day my kids kept exclaiming how cool and awesome the Kitchener library is.
Keep up the amazing work. You are definitely leading the way in what libraries should be.
"Joining the library has brought us closer together as a family."
We have gone through some financial hardships and some emotional unity as a family. Joining the library has brought us closer together as a family activity; the vast amount of resources you have has given us entertainment value we wouldn't have otherwise. It's our #1 experience in a long while.
"I am truly impressed by the library and the range of services that are offered."
I find the library to be a very inviting place to visit, and feel that there is a real sense of community here. At any given time, I notice people from all walks of life making their way in and out of the library.
As a person who has only been living in Kitchener for a few years, and as an over-60 individual, I am truly impressed by the library and the range of services that are offered. I enjoy visiting the library to sign out books (of course), to work on projects, or to just read a magazine and have a coffee. The space is so light-filled, and the arrangement of tables and desks allows people to be near others but still have a touch of privacy. I have also attended some public lectures, and have found them to be terrific.
Thanks for making the library so welcoming to all!
