"I recently needed to take a civil service exam for my job. The Penfield Public Library staff went out of their way to make sure I had the books necessary to study for my exam. Due to their help with my preparation, I scored very well on the test and was ranked #1 on the list! I could not have done this without the assistance of the Penfield Public Library."
