I love my library because we've been attending Storytime for over 2 years now, and have been amazed at how many talented storytellers our public library has! There's also lots more to love about our library's programming. Our family life has been enriched through the various books and media we have brought home from the library. Thank you for being our #1 favorite downtown destination!

This is such a great library!! I love taking the kids and they're always asking to go back. The staff is amazing! They go above and beyond for people and really seem to love what they do!! Our community is so much better because of this place!

I love this center of reading. It is a perfect place to read. As far as library go this is an extremely on-the-nose establishment. It is perfect for playing hide-and-seek in the shelving one a week with my bros.

I love our library! We frequently have field trips here for both of my preschools, and the staff is always so friendly and accommodating. There’s a lot for children to do, it’s great!

This was LOUDEST library I have ever been to with the most disrespectful guests and employees. There were people talking loudly, and shouting on their phones, nonstop. I will not return, if I can help it.
