Love this library. So many interesting programs, dance lessons, presentations, music, cooking demos, and craft classes. Many computer classes offered too. Their book club is a great way to discuss a book and get information on the author from the facilitators. A truly fun group.

Attended Genealogy meeting there today. As usual meeting room was clean, and temperature was comfortable for the length of meeting. Great location to hold a meeting. Reservations are easy to make to reserve your meeting date and time with the library staff.
