I did not realize, before I began working at the Library, that the Library was such a richly, layered place. I knew about checking out books and the wonderful storytimes for children. I had no idea what lay beneath the surface. One of the layers that really impressed me was the variety of programs that were offered to the public. I had no idea. I had only attended one or two programs at my local branch, and both of those were very informative and helpful. They did not lead me to the real scope of programs that are available.
