Thank you for having the PUBLIC LIBRARY open during this Heat Wave days or weeks. I don't have air condition in my house & I am a senior citizen. I will feel comfortable coming here during the heat wave days or weeks. I am so grateful that you have the library open for everyone to come.

Thank you so very much to the Staff at the Fumo Family Library who worked on Saturday and Sunday to keep the library open late during this recent heat wave. I cannot afford to have air conditioning at home, so being able to spend some time in a cool environment was definitely a blessing I am truly grateful for. They say that "kindness no matter how small, is never wasted." I like to believe that it is never forgotten, and that it truly touches the heart and the life that it is bestowed upon. Thank you, Marie Antoinette Avicolli - Girard Estate Area Resident, Philadelphia, PA
