The wifi is very slow, but it has many good qualities. It quit and very welcoming. Its a great place to just sit and read a book with disturbances.

It’s a very nice library, but I tried to go there and do class work which was basically impossible. The WiFi is not good at all, granted its free yes but not worth the hassle I was in there 45 minutes trying to get a decent connection and was unable to. Which if I have do work online or homework that requires online access I’m better off going to a cafe. Very disappointed in that aspect.

I love libraries! This library is high tech and up to date. It has a huge book selection and quite a few nice perks. I love going there, and the atmosphere is nice. The staff is friendly as well

Beautiful library with an awesome staff and many activities. The only thing I do not enjoy is that the children's area needs to be cleaned. Old gum is stuck on the play area, with accumulated grime, and the floor is covered in crumbs and dirt. Other than this I absolutely love this library!
