Comment Regarding WiFi

Comment:  "Wireless too slow today to do my work.  Needed to go outside to get a connection to Comcast.  Please correct.  Oct. 17."

Response:  We are working on getting stronger WiFi connections. 

Comment Regarding Library Cards for Children

Comment: " Students in the Moorestown school district should ... get library cards.  I've been trying to get the parents to get them cards, [but to no avail], thereby depriving my grandchildren access to the wonderful new library and all it has to offer."

Response:  Moorestown Library is not legally allowed to give minors library cards without a parent's signature since it's a parent's responsibility to pay for any overdue fines and/or replacements.  The Library is open Monday - Thursday from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m., as well as Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
