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.

For example, they are training us ( many of whom are senior citizens ) on how to best use all of the social media available these days. They are... More

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 !
