I just love my local library! The branch manager, Rosie has all of the best seller books and videos....no charge! She also have fun programs like teen crafters, crest video gamers get to play Wii and PS3! Also the best Summer Reading Fun.
I have been going to this library to study since I moved to Crest. Its small and quiet, which makes it a nice place to study. However, there are no varieties of electric outlets. I just left there very pissed off because when I first arrived I asked where I would be able to plug in my laptop to study for my finals. I was told I could use a certain table and plug in where the librarian showed me. There were people already sitting at that table so we asked if I could use it to be next to the outlet. They moved and I put my whole setup and was in the zone of typing and working. In mid-sentence of typing another librarian told me that my plug was a "trip hazard" and I needed move. I didn't understand as I was the ONLY one in the library with them. I was told to plug in near the t.v which is the children's area with a child's table. I am 27 years old with a bad back there was no way I was going to put myself through that. I was told to put my laptop on my lap and work on a chair. Considering it was in the children's area and the chair is in front of the t.v area, I didn't understand how this was going to minimize the "trip hazard" as the cord would be going across the children's area. When I tried to explain that I needed a table for my books and laptop I was told again "no". I have been to this library many times, and this experience made me never want to go there again.
