Now that the rebuilt library on South 320th Street has been open for several months, it is plain to see what an asset it is to our community.

It is well used, very attractive on the inside and has a great deal of natural light. As a retired teacher, I place a great value in the children’s section of a library. The library on 320th has a wonderful, extensive children’s section, loaded with brand new hardcover books.

The adult fiction section is a little small, so if I want more selection, I usually end up at the Regional Library on First Avenue.

I am wondering, however, why the entrance into the library from 320th is so narrow. It is difficult to turn into, the curves leading to the parking lot make it difficult for two cars to drive through simultaneously and the parking curbs leaving the parking area stick out so far it’s impossible not to run over them with your back wheels unless you swerve far out into the oncoming lane.

Be careful when walking into the library. The entrance is very slippery when wet. The library is a vast improvement, but the entry and exit by car and on foot leave much to be desired.

Barb Joraanstad, Federal Way
