Don't expect quiet or to get anything done. The "quiet" room shares glass walls with supposed "group study/tutor" rooms, yet some people in the community think that it is perfectly acceptable and respectful to reserve the meeting rooms in 4 hour blocks to play board games with groups of screaming children.

There's no question there's lots of learning and information to gather from that library

I've gone to a lot of public libraries because I think they are great places to get a lot done. This library is okay. My first time coming here I think I had higher expectations for it than I should have. It was very full for a Saturday, which is fine but it was also very loud, even in the areas that are dedicated as quiet quarters. The staff was fine when I asked a question so thats okay. Nothing extraordinary. This library is actually pretty small, its all on one floor and was very packed so I was not able to find seating easily. The computers they have are antiquated and all being used at the same time, so make sure you come with your own laptop if you need to use one. The wifi was a decent speed and connection, so thats good. Thats not always the case with every cafe or library. I finally started feeling like it was quiet enough to do work around 5:15 and 15 minutes later they announced that the library would be closing in 30 mins... welp... there goes my productivity... At least it was quiet for a few moments...

this is a profound resources library after many years efforts. Recently the management changes in a conservative and protected way to stop and prohibit users. The service is getting worse, County council should watch
