This library has a decent selection of books and magazines. They also try to keep the bestsellers on hand, but a lot of time you need to get them though a loan from another library. Not a big deal, I never had to wait for more than a week to get the books I wanted.
As a long-time user of public libraries, the Durham Public library has done one thing better than all the others. I never had a problem of having marked a returned item as not returned. Maybe it is just me, but it is aggravating to get late notices when you returned the item. So it is nice to know that the people here do a good job of checking in the returned items.
While slection for videos and books is better at the main library, this branch does a good job of knowing their people and making you feel welcome.
