I really like the library, I do. It kind of hurts to give them 4 stars. Some of the staff are very helpful, and some are... not.
The books are arranged strangely. The autobiographies are in the fiction section. Many books aren't on shelves but are on top of shelves or on racks in the aisles. This is fine except when you're looking for a specific book.
The library catalogue is not easy to use. The system in general seems very outdated. When I search for authors I have to search Lastname Firstname (took me awhile to figure that out), searching titles required the exact title, searching subjects never returns books only more subjects. Not to mention the catalogue and all websites are case sensitive.
I was really surprised to find out dvds cost $1 to check out. Interlibrary loan also costs $1 per item.
They frequently have events, many of which seem like a lot of fun. And they have tax help during the tax season.
I like the library, it's a great resource, but some things in it really need to be updated.
