Good selection, fine kids programs, great lecture series. Librarians are knowledgeable, many extra helpers are locals who volunteer during the season. Library has an excellent book sale each year.

Love the staff - very friendly and always helpful. One can reserve books and they will be held. This library is wonderful in terms of computers, children story time, and evening events for us older folks!

This small but not tiny library is just so well run. The staff is terrific and bright and will help you find anything you want. There is a great selection of books and magazines, and cds and dvds as well as computers. I could and have spent hours just browsing.

Great library, with up to date books, mags and newspapers, as well as books on tape. Great place to spend those rainy afternoons in Bethany! A simple pleasure just being there. Plenty of computers, and major publications.... All current! Only complaint is that it can get noisy by the front desk, from patrons and even librarians. Enjoy this oasis!

Very friendly staff. Accommodating to locals and out of-towners alike. Computer stations and separate areas for teens and kids. For a local library, it's got it all.
