My boys absolutely love going to the Bryant Branch after school and during the summer! They enjoy checking out books, movies, tablets, playing games, and participating in all of the programs! We're at... one of the branches almost every day. The librarians in Bryant know all of us by name and are always courteous to us. My 13 year old plans to volunteer as soon as he is old enough. There is always something going on and all of my boys love being involved! They used to hate reading, but now they love it!! They read several books each week. Lol! I love that they can walk over after school, find their books, and participate in the after school clubs. I've never had any complaints about them being there, and they know if they do cause problems then they will lose their library time. In fact, they do all of their chores without complaining as long as I take them to the library! I've never had such an effective reward! Thank you to the Saline County Library System for helping my kids find their favorite activity!! We love you!! See More

We love the Benton and Bryant locations! The Benton children's area is amazing and children's events are so fun. Everyone who works there is so friendly and it's obvious that they love their jobs. We ...are thankful to have this resource in Saline County! See More

I love that our library has more than books to check out now. Fishing poles, cake pans, Halloween costumes, games, DVDs, books on CD, playaways, and I just noticed video games. The library is amazing... and the staff is fantastic with questions asked by children. See More

The Saline County Library has lots to offer including video games, cake pans, e-books, and so much more! They have FREE activities for people of all ages. We are very fortunate to have this organizati...on in our community and we should take advantage of what they have to offer.
For me, the Benton branch is a quiet place for me to go work or grab a book and relax.

I would HIGHLY recommend going to the library in Benton over the one in Bryant if its after school. The one in Bryant is overrun with teenagers after school and they are very noisy and very rude. I wa...s in the bathroom and a group of girls were in there as well and they decided to flicker the lights and then turn them off and walk out as I was still in the bathroom. I have been to the Bryant Library twice and both times I was not impressed. See More

Thank you for being so wonderful!

I am a stay at home mom to a one year old and we are always looking for fun things to do together. You guys always have so many things going on. I cannot thank you ...enough for not only doing so much but for having activities that my daughter is old enough to participate in.

We love toddler time and the puppet shows and everything in between. Having such an amazing library in this community brings me such joy.

I look forward to bringing my daughter up right by spending loads of time at the library like I did when I was little.

“Genascent: The Human Genome Project in Plain Words” By C.J. Canna
This book was written for thoughtful members of the public.
Many fields brush up against this science, finance, law, food, internat...ional relations,
medicine, everything from agriculture thru zoology. It is what a logical person might
want to know before using or investing in the science. The book includes … journal articles
in common language… the ethical and legal questions ... funny medical research stories
that tell something about the science or show something about the research environment.

ISBN13 Softcover: 978-1-4653-5061-9
ISBN13 eBook: 978-1-4653-5062-6

[FYI: Print On Demand publishing is not included in the NY Times book review system.]
The author has written a trilogy of movie scripts named “Genascent: Footprints in Time”
which tells the story of genetics from Gregor Mendel through 1993;
“Genascent II: the Living Code” covering the start-up through the completion of the sequence;
and “Genascent III: So It Is Written” showing the impact the Genome has had in
fighting disease. The stories in this book could not be fit into the movies.
