Our latest snapshot took place on February 13, 2019. During this time, we documented the many ways people use library services.
Library staff took pictures of activities, gathered statistics on usage and collected customer comments showing how patrons used the library that day.
“I come here almost every day to get books and use the computers. I am so glad that the library is here.” Omar
“We love attending storytime with our children. As Homeschoolers, we utilize the library often. We check out movies and books weekly and I use the Overdrive system every single day! I LOVE that resource.”
“Hard to imagine my life without the library.” Paul
“Reading opens doors to the world for me. My weekly visit to the library is a highlight of my week!” Kathy W.
“My son loves to come every week to pick out new movies. It’s his favorite day of the week.” John T.
“We are Seniors…my husband and I have been taught how to use a tablet in class and found wonderful homemade recipes and have gotten priceless movies. We would be lost without our library. Mom was right, ‘If you can read, you can do anything.’” Kitty & Bob
Volusia County Public Library has partnered with PBC Guru and Freading to create a virtual book club for patrons and the community.
The book for May 27 - July 29 is The Leavers by Lisa Ko.
One morning, Deming Guo's mother, an undocumented Chinese immigrant named Polly, goes to her job at the nail salon and never comes home. Set in New York and China, the Leavers is the story of how one boy comes into his own when everything he's loved has been taken away and how a mother learns to live with the mistakes of her past.
It is always available for download from Freading.
