I like that it has lots of children's programs, online reservation and self checkout, free access to programs like freegal and online ebook rentals. The library catalog is easy to use and even allows you to search by reading levels. I've been going here regularly for 5 years and the staff has always been friendly and professional. It seems like it has been getting a little too crowded recently, especially after school, but that's how it goes with Bentonville population growth. Finding a quiet place to read or work or a place to park is a bit harder, but still doable.

I have had to use the library computers and I have found myself stumped when downloading and retrieving information and Kathleen and Jeanne have been so helpful and kind that they deserve recognition. They made my work with computers not so daunting. See you next visit!

I always find a book of interest to keep me engaged. Plenty of seating for the patrons. Checkout kiosks make it so easy and quick.
