Visitor Comments

"We love the Library! My 2-year-old wants to go every day."

"If the Library wasn’t here, I wouldn’t have the love for books I have today. A great place to talk with friends, access materials, join groups, or participate in programs. Also useful as a meeting place, and if you need to plan, it has a phone."

"I love our Library. Love to read. Our Library is so involved in our community. Great place for kids."

"I put my art in for the abstract art showing here at the Library. From what it seems, I am the only student. Too cool! Thanks for letting me share my art!!!"

"The Library is officially my favorite spot in town. It is so relaxing and peaceful. I totally could NOT live without the library."

"Our Library is one of the best libraries I have ever lived near! Staff are extremely resourceful, friendly and helpful. I can always get what I need either immediately or through interlibrary loans (quickly). The various public (youth, adult and family) programs offered are exceptional. True education!"
