I’m very happy with Value Line. I’m able to print out the date sheets or see them online without printing.

I love Berlin-Peck. I always find books to take home!

Former Berlin resident (who still visits!)

Thank you very much for offering this [Zentangle] class to us. I had a lot of fun. You learn something new every day.

I just wanted to let you know that I think your adult lecture series have been so informative!  I loved the one from the “dog whisperer” last year and then the one I just attended about Dementia. I’ve learned so much useful information that I’ve passed onto my friends and family! Thanks again, and keep up the great work!

Berlin Resident

I like the Readbox. Great idea!
