Bay County Public Library Reviews

from: Steve Myers | submitted: Feb 02, 2012
This library has the most obnoxious, humorless, unfriendly employees of any library I have ever patronized. Even the "volunteers" shelving books are rude, abrasive and impersonal. I always felt going to the library was a happy, joyous occasion; the people who work at the main branch on 11th street in Panama City, FL, make you feel like you are attending a funeral or going to court for a traffic violation. FYI the employees at the Springfield branch are friendly, kind and helpful like library personnel should be.
