Residents may subscribe for electronic check out of many selections. Look around at the grandeur of how important libraries were to the populace to spend... More

An historical site with a great story behind it, told to us on a "tour" by a most courteous staff member (they all were very nice and helpful). The history is right there in front of you, but don't be fooled. They still deliver everything you would expect from a library in 2015. The Children's area, upstairs, is very well... More

This is a spectacular building, a must see. Only one block up from the Historic Square. They have very informative brochures in the front lobby about the construction of the library and there is also a gift shop.

Just stopped in for a brief visit, and bathroom break, but this library was well used by the community. Plenty of parents with children in tow to pick out books for summer reading.

I love this library! Every time I walk into it, I start humming the music to Marian the Librarian. The collection is extensive, the programming is on point, but you go for the architecture. This truly is a gorgeous building. Kids will enjoy climbing the spiral staircase behind the circulation desk.

Handley Library is gorgeous and beautifully built. It's a very good place to go for local resources and to explore. We love the staff because they're always very friendly and helpful. Handley also seems like it would be a great place to read or write if you need a quiet place. However, as a library it has a very limited... More
