"Signed the kids up for the summer reading program again (our 5th or 6th year doing so) at the Summer Reading Program Kickoff last week. The staff at East Columbia is so wonderful. After the event my son was looking for some books on a topic in the Children's Room and the librarian spent so much time with us to seek out exactly what he wanted. She even made 2 phone calls to other branches to request titles for him. We have never been disappointed with the children's programs offered at the library and look forward to attending some this summer."
