  • Well, checking movies out for three days to a week at no cost is better than renting and/or buying them when you are short on funds

      Houston Love Memorial Library is located at 212 West Burdeshaw Street in Dothan, Al with plans to build a second branch on the outer edge of the city. The facilities offer computers with the option to check out laptops instead of using desktops in the two computer labs provided and wifi access for those that have laptops but no access. Changes mean that it is no longer required to sign in for the computers. Now users enter their card number and pin code to access the Internet on the laptops. A timer then gives the user an hour, close to

      the end you are asked if you want to extend or end the session. The choice is a personal preference and use is still limited to once a day.

      The options for using the Internet alone make it worth the trip but if you live out of town the trip should be planned so that at least a few hours are spent to make full use of the facilities in the building. The library has a room dedicated to children’s books so that small children do not have to try and fit in with the adults in the larger rooms. There ...

      • are tables set up in the main room and the books are divided into sections on either side. There are also small computer desks for those that prefer. Whether a computer desk or table is used will depend on how much room that is required for you to work.

        The resources at the facility are actually rather good with daily newspapers and periodicals. Having copies made is rather cheap and printing of pages is charged by the page. Combined with the clean restrooms and water fountains for those that find themselves in need it is pretty decent for a smallish

        town. Microfilm is still available, most books are a 28 day checkout and you can rent movies for free. Well, checking movies out for three days to a week at no cost is better than renting and/or buying them when you are short on funds.

        The staff has always been rather helpful in the explanations of how things work, looking up forgotten pin codes and helping to find resources in the library. All in all I have to give the Houston Love Memorial Library a rating of 10 out of 10 for doing so much in such a small city.
