"Many people would comment on the literacy element of the library but I would like to state that among all families with children in my acquaintance the library is considered a flagship strength of OSM. It is an important pillar of our sense of shared community and gives people a tangible example of how OSM as a municipality serves its citizens well. It's one of the best investments the Township has." -- Laura Summerfeldt
