Ppld-Ruth Holly Branch Reviews

from: Valorie D Littin | submitted: Mar 22, 2013
I have used Pikes Peak library district for over 20 years. I have been in KS temporarily for the last 6 mths. PPLD library system is far superior. The whole state of KS does not have the circulation of one Branch in the PPLD! It has been a shocking experience. However, I will treasure the PPLD for the all that I have at may finger tips, and the professional, compassionate service of the fine women and men who I see when I walk through their doors. Thank you, PPLD system! I am glad to be back.
