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

This library is unparalleled, and the heart of the community. There are extensive on-line resources, and classes on everything. The librarians are all really nice and helpful. Parking validation for 1/2 hour.

Amazing service advising guests on Apple products once a month, with free consulting services on the Cloud, ipads, Macbooks, iphones, etc. They'll troubleshoot, synch everything for you, train you on details of functionality, just like the Apple Store. Wonderful film and speaker series, decent cafe, many, many other surprising services.
