Old book shelves and atmosphere of a early 20th century library. The building in itself is interesting and full of character.

We could see the library literally from my friend's back yard. When we visited the library it was vibrant and bustling with patrons young and old. The library was well designed with functional spaces for learning, research, study and fun. Well worth a trip.

Everyone was helpful here and it was very youth-friendly. Our older teen daughter was pleasantly surprised they had such a large anime selection. They had computers to use with free WiFi and comfortable beany bag chairs to sit on. It was very clean and also had washrooms.

Excellent library... Good reference materials (Value-Line for stocks) newspapers, kid's section, literary events. Check the days and hours first as the different island libraries have different schedules.

The OB Library is fun and a nice stop, especially on a rainy day. It's very cute and the staff is very helpful. It's nice to take time out of a crazy day to swing by and relax at the library.

The library building is very well designed, and has very supportive staff. Good collection that is enhanced via the CLAMS inter library loan program . Good internet connection and computer access. If it is raining , certainly the place to go, especially with children !
