This library has it all. Beautiful views, sitting areas, historic collections, videos, etc. Everything anyone would want in a main library. It makes you proud to take friends to this library. Way to go Bay County and thank you Jack and Alice Wirt.

Stopped in with my granddaughters on a rainy day. We had a good time relaxing and finding books to bring home. Beautiful fireplace too.
