Patron Comment: The Up for Grabs is a great one. However some people are walking away with stacks. It will be nice if it is limited to 3 rentals per day or something. The other day I saw a lady walk away with almost the entire stack.

Patron Comment: My daughter (11) an I came for the fringe necklace demo. A number of participants took a good deal of materials (fringe) so much so that three people could not participate at all. Would it be better to make place settings with the materials measured out? This was very nice craft. Younger children need better supervision when handling supplies. Can't assume parental help.

Patron Comment: Scrap Kamrowski sculpture. Get something fun in its place. That corner represents prime estate. Those sq. ft cost a bundle. Free art - good value.

Patron Comment: Please reconsider the ratio of regular DVD to Blue ray, regards the need to keep up with technology, which is not always affordable for patrons.

Patron Comment: Would it be possible to set something up w/the Ypsi library so that Ypsi and AA residents can check books out from other libraries without using MELCat? I would love to be able to introduce my Ypsi friends to the beautiful AA library or check out books there when I'm in the area!

Patron Comment: This library has been the most wonderful place to bring my child to and cultivate the love of books. I discover new things every day such as your 'stories to go' and 'unusual stuff' that enhance my child's learning experience. The only trouble I ever have is trying to convince him not to use the computers in the kids area. I am sure there are some parents and children who really appreciate the facility but I wonder if there may be a way to separate the computers from the rest of the kids area of the library. I know a lot of parents struggle to convince toddlers to leave when they really want screen time. I would rather spend that time reading together with him, discover a new book or play with the educational toys and activities that are out. This is not a criticism in any way, I just feel I want him to learn to love books, and not that they are what keep him away from the exciting screens. Many thanks for everything that you do, and for taking the time to read this. Best wishes,

AADL Reply: Thank you for your email. I am thrilled to see that you and your son are enjoying the library! We'll keep your suggestion in mind as we work to balance the many varying needs of our patrons. For example, for some library users, the computers that we make available to children are the only ones that these children have access too, and their caregivers appreciate the opportunity to provide this option to their children. Placing children's computers in areas of the library that aren't designated for that use creates some different challenges. We will continue to do our best to provide an environment that can work for all of those needs, and appreciate your feedback. Best, Sherlonya Turner Youth & Adult : Services & Collections Manager
