Seeing that the L.E. Phillips library is the ONLY library for a city of 69,000 people it could have better hours. The library only opens at 10am on weekdays and closes early.

Such a great family friendly place to go and explore with kids or by yourself. Everything from books, music, dvds, and the local art scene.

I love this library! They have a great selection and also have free audiobooks online. Their kids section is full of fun things for children and they always have reading programs throughout the year. Including a program where you can read away your debt.

We were able to check out canning equipment for 4 weeks. What a great benefit. The kit came with a pressure canner, equipment kit, and books. We were able to put up plum jelly, apple pie filling, apple sauce, and tomato sauce.

They have a great kid section. Good adult selection. They are part of a huge library system that does interlibrary loans. Love how you can request and renew online or by phone if you can't make it down. Lots of activities for all ages throughout...More

We enjoy getting our books at the library instead of purchasing. We also use their system of getting our name on a list when new books come out.

It is worth visiting just to see the setting and the building. It is clean and the staff is friendly. It has a very nice children's' library and a large selection of books, audio materials and even movies.
