“Excellent Small Town Library”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I'm prejudiced because I spent so much time here when I was growing up and in school many years ago. I guess I realized even then how lucky Oil City was to have a quality library in a beautiful building. Now, during a brief visit, I discovered it has been wonderfully maintained, with a bank of computers for internet access.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Went here when visiting my grandchildren. It is a beautiful library. All 3 of the girls had their own age appropriate sections to explore. Places to use thier computers or to set up your laptop. Beautiful and well kept.
