It doesn't look like much from the outside, but as the adage goes: "don't judge a book by its cover."
This facility has some state-of-the-art check-out stations for books. You simply pile the books on the scanner and it reads each individual item. You can even email your check-out receipt to yourself.
There is a great comics/graphic novels section of which I've taken advantage.
Downstairs has a wonderful kids area with a wide array of books, both new and classic. The play area has so many diverse activities ranging from a puppet-show stage to a SMART touchscreen tabletop. It's on the lower floor, keeping the inevitable volume of the kids away from reading/studying adults upstairs.
As a whole, the library itself is clean, well lit, and has a willingly-helpful staff.
I am actually a resident of Roselle, but have registered my library card to this library in order to take advantage of its features (only a five-minute process, by the way).
