The scale and feeling of the building and should be experienced. Although I didn't check out the collection, the building alone is worth the visit.

Just moved to area and the library has been a wealth of information plus activities for the kids. The diversity of available information has been great. My husband is in love with history and the recent "tour" of historical sites was great.

Handley Regional Library is a "Must See" when visiting downtown Winchester, VA. Many great photo opportunities outside, as well as inside. Be sure to go upstairs to the Rotunda, and see the unique flooring. Also the spiral staircase! Great place to stop and visit!

One of the local shopkeepers suggested we stop by to see the library. We were blown away. The architecture both on the outside and inside is beautiful. We spent some time just wandering around looking at all the nooks and crannies and that amazing dome.
