Letter: Ada Public Library is the greatest!

Icon viewers:
The Ada Public Library is the greatest! I stop by at least once a week to update my movie selection and reading material.

Through the library's website adalibrary.org, I can easily order movies and books from over 100 other libraries, allowing me to get items that the Ada library doesn't own. Along with popular titles, it's surprising how many old and obscure films are available!

The library's recent renovation is well done with bright colors, additional space for activities (check out the children's area), a nice meeting room and convenient parking.
