Having used the central Multnomah County Library for years, when we moved to central Oregon, I was concerned that a small community wouldn't be able to support a quality library. I was wrong. They do basically everything here ... just on a smaller scale. You can put books on reserve and pick them up whenever they are ready (and of course you are notified by e-mail). They can do inter-library loans. They have a quick read table for a lot of new releases, one week loan and no renewals...but if you're a quick reader, you don't have to wait months for that hot, new release. Their new releases are up front, by the check out, so even if you are just returning a book, you can do a quick glance to see if there is anything you'd like to read. They also have internet available for those that need this service (use of their computer, or bring your own).
But, do you want to know the real value of the Crook County Library? It's the staff. They're helpful, friendly and pretty soon they greet you like a long-time friend. You don't get that in the big cities!
NOTE: I'm actually 'out of county', but the Crook Library is the closest to where I live, Even paying the annual $30 out-of-county fee, it is well worth it!
