The leadership at the Fredricksen Library had the vision to appreciate that a library is much more than a book repository; so much more than patrons borrowing and returning books. The programs offered at Fredricksen Library exceed what one might find on a college campus. Fredricksen truly serves all ages from “K to gray.” The well-designed space is enhanced by the helpful and pleasant staff and volunteers, all of whom clearly enjoy what they are doing. Reference materials, periodicals, fiction and nonfiction books, media, art, outdoor concerts, children’s events, seminars, organization gatherings: what more could a library offer? I am confident that Fredricksen Library will continue to provide the answer to this question in the coming years.
