    • Overview

      “The Newburg branch has become an instant success, an immediate center for the community, and a beacon of hope for those who are enjoying its community-building design and state-of-the-art services every day. . . . ‘This library is truly representative of what its neighbors asked and hoped for,’ said LFPL director Craig Buthod. ‘They talked, we listened, and our architect was able to weave together threads of need, use, and value, making this library part of the community fabric right from the start.’”
      —Susan McNeese Lynch, American Libraries
