Testimonials

Being in the [book] club rules!!

A member of the children's book club

I loved the Florence Griswold Museum! We brought a picnic, and it was right on the water. The printable museum pass was so easy.

Berlin Resident (and Berlin-Peck Regular!)

I come here all the time. It’s such a nice library. I get so much more done here than I would working at home.

Patron

There are often enough items from which to choose, adult programs both my husband and I enjoy, and a friendly staff.

This is the best day at the library ever!

Little girl in the Children's Department

BTW, this summer reading program is GREAT! I’m learning a lot about what the library has to offer–both online and onsite. Super idea!

Sandra

Adult Read Challenge has been so much fun…!

You have a very warm and welcoming library.

I don’t know why I lock my door… the only two valuable things in my house are my piano and my library card.

Only things worth stealing
