It's not just books (though it has all the books you could want to read and if there's a book they don't have, they'll order it); it's also the wonderful facility that has a cafe, meeting room, and rooms available for small group meetings. The library has a wonderful program of speakers, movies, music, etc. It's the heart and soul... More

I love a library that offers you a free class on how to get the maximum benefit of your membership. I also love the free technology classes. They are ahead of the curve

They always have what I need, and I take advantage of the books there by placing books on hold. It is always convenient to run in to the library and have the book you want waiting for you at the counter. They recently... More

Visit here regularly. It is an ideal place to meet someone if you have a few moments to wait - their cafe in the lobby serves coffee and light fare with plenty of tables. Free wifi throughout. Tons of resources and community programs. This is definitely the "heart of the community". They are plugged into the interests, likes, and happenings... More
