The coolest library in the world

This past Friday was a busy day in the Local History division.  We had two separate school visits in the morning which made for a flurry of activity.  One of the visits was a group of homeschoolers who dropped in and were given an impromptu tour of our resources in the division.  They stayed for a while after the tour, quietly doing some research activities.  Another school visit was from a fifth grade class at School No. 5.  The students were shown several specific resources that were of interest to them.  For example, they looked at a historical map of the location of their school and explored information on historically significant Rochesterians.  The students stayed interested and engaged during their visit and one student was heard to remark, as he passed by the Vital Records desk, “This is the coolest library in the whole wide world!”  If that’s not music to any educator’s ears, I don’t know what is!
