I visit the library about every two weeks for books. They have an excellent museum on the history of Grant County. They have an excellent children's department.

This tiny Grant County history museum is nicely outfitted, with timelines and good visual displays of the county's past 200 years. Although born in Marion, I encountered much information that I simply did not know.
