To Whom It May Concern:


My name is Lillian and I am a fourth grader in Arlington Traditional School. I’m 10 years old and I LOVE books. The reason of this letter is to tell you how I love your service.

I got my library card for my 10th birthday. I loved it! I carry it wherever I go. If a friend and I are bored, we would go straight to the Central Library. I also like the computer service. Keep it up! I visit the library almost every week. Even if I don’t need to check out a book, I would just stroll in. Sooner or later, I would find myself on a chair with a book in my hands.

I also like how the library get[s] new books often and let[s] people check out playaways, CD’s, DVD’s, kindle books, and lots more! There are so many advantages about the Central Library, I can’t even list them.
