  • Came on a Sunday and it was closed. Main sign only said seasonal. Sign on the side a few feet away said until September.
  • Not a bad library. It's free books right how can you go wrong.
  • Good place small though and where the computers are there's a lot of talking.
  • Use to go there alot. bit for the past few years, it's just a cybercafe for loud kids playing minecraft.... even cyber cafes are quieter..
  • Good location !!
