Larger libraries allow for more resources

I would like to thank Managing Librarian Leslie Moore for all of the help she gave me the last two-and-a-half years while I was researching the history of the women ancestors of my granddaughters two families in order to make her the quilt that hung on the library wall this summer. She very patiently helped me acquire skills I never thought Id have for doing online research, even on two different occasions giving the same lesson on how to really research on the Internet.
I did reference section research at the Monroe, Marysville and Snohomish branches. The larger sizes of these libraries allows for a much larger collection of reference books than I could obtain in Arlington. It would be so wonderful to have these expanded research tools right here in our hometown.
You can help stock our library with vastly increased reference materials by voting for the upcoming library bond.
