Good selection of both fiction and nonfiction. I’m also impressed with their comic books section. They have free access to computers and even a 3D printer. Quiet, comfortable atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff. The children’s floor is great as well: there are a wide selection of books, free computer access, and a jigsaw puzzle area, and the decorations are top notch.

I love this library. I've been coming here since I was just a kid. The downstairs was always fun, but I'm an adult now so I've graduated to the upstairs. I like to come relax and bring my laptop to work on class or just play some games. Good place to chill. It's very comfy and has a good vibe, plus, free WiFi.

This is a two story library. Good selection of reading materials for all ages. They offer a computer section as well as comfortable studying chairs and tables. Love that the children's section is in the downstairs area and they offer a wide variety of reading and activities. The biggest bonus to this location is the park out back. A great place to take your reading material to.

Very friendly staff; I definitely feel safe here. I'm usually here too! I love how the park is right next to it as well.
