Patron Portraits

Our Cambridge Public Libraries attract an amazing number of patrons each month. Here's a sampling of how some of you used the library in February.

Alex and Laura, working at the Main Library are study partners in a
post-baccalaureate program. They meet once a week for 2-3 hours
and love the clean, spacious environment.

Liam and his mother Alex are drawn to the Main Library several
 times a month by the amazing selection of children's books
and the sing-along program. Most of all, Liam likes "just the books."

Emily is a Somerville resident who uses the Main Library at
least twice a week to conduct her job search in peace and quiet.
Although there is another library closer to where she lives, 
Emily says, "The new building is so nice."

Claude uses the Central Square branch every day for computer access.
He likes the location because it is close to public transportation,
and he appreciates the quiet environment of the computer room and
the ready assistance of the librarian in charge.

Audrey is 8 years old, and every Tuesday she spends time at the
 Boudreau branch before her weekly yoga lesson. She can read quietly
in a rocking chair and decide which books she will check out for the week.

Nancy lives across the street from the Valente branch and is
at the library 3 or 4 times a week to catch up on current periodicals
and check out foreign films from the branch's extensive collection.
Nancy calls all of the Cambridge libraries "treasures in the city...
places of wonder and magic." 

There are always great things happening at the library! For more information on how you can get involved with the Friends and help to support our Cambridge libraries click here.  And please consider adding a comment below to tell us how you use the library.
