Congratulation! All my Librarian Friends, Security Officer and Officer James who are all responsible for the wonderful operation of McGovern-Stella Link Library. Everyone's hard work and Friendlyatmosphere at our neighborhood Library have enlighten and delighted our needs to learn and be abreast of all technical equipment and writing emails into today's society with computers. The basic training in the operation of computers and other data sources have really satisfy my knowledge and the need to learn more. I'm sure my "Class Mates" of 50+ class are very grateful! It is delightful to see Senior Citizens interested in the operation of Computers,Digital Cameras' usage and Scanning Photos, etc.The Librarians have saved all of us large-sums-of-monies in educating us on the knowledge of computer usage, compare to the high cost of college tuition in Computer Sciences. Thanks again... Also,I have witness the outstanding training and knowledge of computers the Librarians have pass on to all the Children... I hope one day that the students will remember those people who have assisted them with computer knowledge because where ever life takes them, each student will be excellent workers or entrepreneurs with outstanding computer experiences. students
Best Public Library Branch - 2010
McGovern-Stella Link Neighborhood Library
We'll always have a special place in our hearts for the downtown, main branch of the HPL, but let's face it: Driving downtown is about as much fun as a migraine. Thank goodness there are plenty of convenient branches, and right now our favorite is this bright, clean building that opened in 2005. Located in well-scrubbed Braeswood Place, the library is next to a YMCA, a park and a fire station, which adds to the cozy neighborhood feel. Inside, the building's windows let in a ton of sunlight, all the computer terminals actually work and the shelves are wonderfully maintained. If you don't have kids, or if maybe it's just been a long time since your Web-surfing ass has actually gotten up and gone to a library, you owe it to yourself to check out this branch. You're sure to become a regular.
Is it really surprising that the library you recommend is in a nicer part of town? Obviously a higher-income area is going to have a nicer, better maintained library, that's the way the library system works. Try visiting some of the other branches to see the difference in support each gets, it's ridiculous that branches of the same system are not treated equally. Public funds are used, as the article puts it, in 'well-scrubbed' areas.
