Very rude staff! I asked where several books are and was ignored. When I finally spoke up they asked me to keep it down. I then explained how I was waiting 20 minutes for help with finding books. Then they said to wait for someone available to come to the front desk. I ended up waiting 15 more minutes until a staff came and said that the books I wanted were not here. Terrible service.

Small library with a slightly cramped feeling

I visited the library on a whim as this is the town my grandmother grew up. I love this library, for the building and the librarians! They helped me as I searched the Local / genealogy reference section. It also reminded me of the library I visited as a kid down in Florida (although not as old, I'm sure) Great history, don't tear it down!
