I'm not from the area, but I love visiting libraries. This one was impressive with its two stories. Quiet, and kept up well. It was nice to be able to escape the summer heat and read for a few minutes.

Centrally located and architecturally interesting. They carry a wide range of things to borrow from books, CDs and DVDs and have a number of computer terminals for you to use. The nonfiction is all on the second floor and I like to browse up there....More
