Great Addition

This is a great addition for a small town library. There are larger towns around that do not offer it to their patrons, not knowing that it would increase traffic into the library.
I have done research for almost 40 years and library additions such as this is such a help to all who so enjoy the hobby,profession of Genealogy.
Those of Argos should make use of this. I pay because my county library will not provide it.
Thanks to those who have made this possible.
