Very nice well maintained library with a floor completely for kids. DVD/digital media section needs renovation. There is a small coffee shop inside. Book drop off location is not well designed. Very hard to drop off books sitting inside the car.

This is a great place to go with young children as it is separate from the rest of the library! It is an enclosed space and very nice.
