Nice staff, and location. Always have a smooth time when I put something on hold through inter-library loan through there. If they don't have something, they can usually get it somewhere. An asset to the community.

Really good library. Staff are friendly. Huge selection of books, movies, CD, and audio books. Many computers to get online. Huge kid collection. I've honestly lived in bigger cities with smaller libraries.

I love our library. They have tons of events and the staff is exceedingly helpful. They offer book clubs, kids activities, writer support groups and more. They have a rare book collection and a genealogy research section. If they don't have what you are looking for, they can get it from another library because they are part of the Illinois public library interlibrary loan system. They have free WiFi and paid printing.
