What makes the Miller-Golf Links Library special?
Mary McKinney, Miller-Golf Links Library Manager, says, “The question is best answered by the thousands of people with “library” on their to-do list each day. If you do ask, they will likely say that the library they go to is the closest one to home, they like the friendly staff, their kids love Storytime or Minecraft, there are usually computers available without a waiting list, the copies are inexpensive, or that their printer is out of ink. What sets libraries apart, not from each other but from other destinations, is that libraries are open seven days per week with inside temps hovering around 72 degrees and offer activity options to suit anyone’s interests…at no charge!“
