I grew up here during the summers in Salisbury, CT and a weekly trip to this library was always a special event. Noted as the first public free library in the United States, it might not be as big as the large city libraries that you are accustomed too, but the selection of latest books, periodicals, and newspaper is enough to require more reading time than you would have available. Local history is a strength as is the DVD collection. The atmosphere is comfortable and inviting (don't miss the small architectural sculpture over the fireplace gifted to the library from "the" Salisbury Cathedral in England). The staff is always warm, friendly, and helpful. They have a community room offering lectures throughout the year.
