I also was at the training done here the other day. I really liked the library itself, it was very large (much larger than the library in my town), and it seemed to have a lot more areas to relax. I also noticed they had several events going on, which I also liked. Overall, the people I talked to were very friendly and glad to attend the presentation. The library also was very physically accommodating, and had accessible bathrooms and ramps for wheelchair users.

I was also at today's library event and had a nice time. The presenters did a wonderful job, and everybody with whom I interacted was excellent. This library recently underwent a renovation and is very spacious.

I've been to the Wilmette Public Library a few times and I've always found the people who work there to be wonderful. I was at an event there today, and the accommodations made for us were very good.

The Wilmette Public Library is far better than the average library. Not only do they have a really great selection, but the people are exceptionally nice, especially Ellen and Gayle. They have taken the time to talk with me, when I had thoughts and ideas in mind that I wanted to share with them. They seemed very open to my suggestions and have even gone out of their way to purchase items I suggested they add to their collection. I like to share the things I like with others, and this was one of the few libraries to actually command my requests instantly! Way to go! :)

Wow! Wilmette Public Library is a great destination for people with and without disabilities. They have it all...from a great accessible facility to a great collection; from used books to all kinds of programming for those with all kinds of interests. Library staff members are warm and helpful, and are really making an effort to understand and address the needs of their patrons with special needs. The Library has recently started offering "sensory friendly" movie screenings, and has invited a patron with an intense interest in movie posters to display part of his collection at the Library. Wow!

I've been to the Wilmette Library several times by myself. Sometimes I've ridden my bike there and sometimes I've walked there. Whenever I go to the Wilmette Library by myself, when I can't find a book, the guys usually help me find the book and they've been helpful. I use my own library card when I go to the Wilmette Library by myself. It has been fun to go to the Wilmette Public Library by myself. It's a fun library to go to.
