My library card is the most used plastic in my wallet. I frequent many libraries. This library offers so many items which are in demand today. They are a bit more progressive with expenses also put forward to DVDs and music.

The library is friendly and sectioned off into teens, children, adult stacks for fiction, and a large collection of dvds. Take the stairs or elevator (or come in from Main St for ground level entry) upstairs for meeting rooms, magazines, non-fiction, audio books, and computers.

I am so pleased with this community resource. Debbie, the head librarian, is the most helpful and friendly person that I have had the pleasure to meet. I only wish more people would recognize what a gem of a resource this library is to our community. I can't express my gratitude enough for the library itself, and for the people... More
