They have so many interesting programs. There are lectures, movies and music. The bulletin board is informative for everything happening around town. Also they make it easy for you to join or start your own book club.

This is a great small city library. It has free WiFi and a/c for the hot days. Check the library home page for events. But there was a music festival the last few days and free movies a couple days each month. There is a room called Makers Spacd that has 3D printers. For about $1, I maked a personalized book marker. On the second floor is a small aviary with international birds. But generally I just like this place because it is quiet and safe.

I had never seen the new library and was quite impressed. I would like to go in and spend several hours in the old Rapid City room some day. The library is open to all and has a few nice pieces of art here and there as well.

I have attended many great programs, lectures, movies, musical artists at the Rapid City Public Library. They have an extensive collection which covers a broad range of topics and interests. I have also made great use of their online services such as using their online database for magazines and borrowing audiobooks as well as ebooks. Whenever I am planning on a long trip I check out several audiobooks to make the miles go by faster. I have always found the staff to be very helpful. The library is certainly an asset to our community.
