Overheard in the Library . . . . . . "The staff of the Penfield Public Library is always quite courteous and helpful. Their number one priority is customer service, whether it is locating a book, answering reference questions, or having a sufficient number of computers for patrons to use. These are things that all libraries should do, but not all of them have the requisite resources. Penfield has a community that supports and uses its library and in return the library does a terrific job of staying relevant in the Internet age."
