Great selection of books at this library and great sitting areas here. Awesome selection of movies too! I would recommend this library if you haven't been to this library yet.

I took my toddlers here for Thursday morning reading time. They had a lot of fun and I appreciated the patience and coordination of the event. They have a decent kids section.

Staff never knows what you're talking about as far as events they themselves have advertised.

The employees here seem to be under the misunderstanding that they are security guards and the patrons are convicts. I read about three novels a week, I don't need a guilt trip every time I check out a book.
