For ten years I have been using FLP computers to access email, do searches, etc. Today for the first time I checked the info packed home page, clicked on a few sites and realized how dumb I have been. What a fantastic list of features, info, FLP services and offerings to the area. I think I can get my Red Hat Ladies to one of the Sunday programs. If not I will be there. I dont know how to use an Mp3 or the other electronics but you do and you are offering so much to those with access to internet. I am so excited to learn how much you offer. I have been mourning loss and cutbacks of services w/o realizing how much I can find online. Thank you for providing so much modernity as well as Rare Books, Music through the centuries, etc. FLP is books and so much more!
