What a neat small town library! Excellent youth programs and very engaged librarians. We stopped for a few minutes of free WiFi (FAST) and stayed to watch some of the kids programs - a topic of personal interest.

This little library is fantastic. A great variety of books and some for sale for 25 cents!! Well worth a visit and the WIFI is free. A donation is suggested and well worth it.

Great place to chill out, read, and enjoy the common areas in a beautiful building amidst wonderful art. At Christmas it was decorated as if a private home. Just wonderful for such a small town,
