Those visiting White Rock Library last Friday were treated to some goodies – including cookies, coffee and trays of fruit – as part of the branch’s Customer Appreciation Day.
A table of refreshments, as well as a special prize draw, welcomed all who stepped into the 15342 Buena Vista building June 3.
“It’s just to show our patrons how much we appreciate them,” library supervisor Lucinda Lyall said, noting the branch has around 4,500 members. “They make it a pleasure to work here.”
Fred Koop said he has been coming to the library for 30 years, and enjoys the staff’s positive attitude.
“Most libraries are friendly, but this one is particularly helpful,” the White Rock resident said.
Charles Marxer agreed.
“This is the best library in the whole world,” said Marxer, who moderates SFU Philosopher’s Café, held once a month at the library.
The event also kicked off White Rock Library’s summer offerings, including its children, teen and adult summer reading clubs, in which bookworms can record their reading time and enter to win prizes.
