Beautiful library, good selection.....but their staff is absolutely, without a doubt the most unfriendly, unhelpful, most miserable people I have come into contact with in quite some time. Seriously, their service is on par with the DMV. Disgraceful.

Recently moved to Villa Rica from Tn. Went to library today to secure a card. The sweet lady that took care of me could not have been nicer. I also noticed another lady taking care of another couple. She was also very nice. Very good experience. Looking forward to my visits.

We have dealt with some inadequate libraries before, this one is the worst. Almost nothing we need for homeschool assignments is there! For such a nice building, it has the smallest selection of non-fiction books I have ever seen. We have to buy our own books because our tax dollars are going to a building instead of books.
