  • I visited the library to research my family tree. It is a lovely building- worth a visit for the atmosphere and views across the town alone. I found staff helpful. 
  • Holds and incredible number of books and archives. Simply brilliant.
  • Great, clean, quiet reading areas.

They have really preserved their records well (more than I can say about some Texas records only about 200 years old). Keep it up!
  • If you are looking for a book good odds say that this Library has it stocked. The reading room is quiet and a good work area for anyone studying, especially students looking to get there work done. Staff are always friendly and helpful, and the cafe is a nice place to get a bite to eat.
