I always love coming to the library. They have a great selection and they no longer charge late fees! They have the option to send out a text when your books are due back. Their summer reading program is so fun, they change it every year to a new theme and the kids are so excited to get started. The prizes are great and follow the theme for the year. Last year was building blocks, the kids got block erasers, note pads, etc. A few years ago it was art themed and the kids got a whole set of markers and velvet posters to color. The last prize is always a tshirt. It's fun to see kids of all ages wearing these around town. The library has a cute program for younger preschool aged kids in the mornings, a story and a craft.
This is a phenomenal library. It has the downtown look the historical crowd loves, but also contains a great tech department downstairs that keeps it relevant for the new age crew. Community members can spend time 3d printing, taking a vast array of small classes, joining a book club or perusing the numerous rows of books!
This library is wonderful and the staff are so willing to take time and help and do with a cheerful smile. The lower level Tech Center is the great resource with everything from college prep classes (which my daughter is taking) to technology classes to quiet computer and study areas. Just down the hall is the Story Time room where little ones can have a Dr. Seuss, VeggieTales or other book read to them or work with their hands in the crafts room. I can't say enough good things about this delightful library!
For me, this is one of the greatest libraries I have been graced to set foot in. It is an architectural marvel of the world, a contender for man-made Wonders of the World. The design of so near perfect I have witnessed people break out in tears just glimpsing it in their rearview mirrors driving past. The service is above and beyond what a human even deserves. Specifically the Pages of this great library. The articulate fashion of their book placing techniques, and the manner in which they walk is unimaginable; placing them as some of the most deserving minimum wage workers to ever live. If you want to be happy, heck, if you want your descendants to be happy, get a book from this place.
