  • I love their genealogy department. I have spent countless hours here. They always have a great selection of books, audiobooks and movies. The staff are always helpful and knowledgeable.

  • Why is a library listed as “something to do”? What is there to do? Walk in and wonder around? Boring!

  • Was a spectacular, historical, beautiful library filled with wonderful stuff. The kids loved the kids department and we’ll have to check out the ghost cams at home.
  • An amazing place with friendly people. Could definitely spend hours here...plus it's haunted!
