  • My absolute favorite place in town!! This library is gorgeous and everyone in the library is always very friendly and helpful. I love the library system that makes it so easy to borrow and return books very much! Being here in this library always makes a happy Shing. :)
  • Nice library. Not quite as dope as the Daniel Boone Regional Library, but hey nobody's perfect ;) The cafe sells coffee for $1 if you bring in your own travel mug. Which I thought tasted good.
  • The best library I have every been to. (I'm from Miami and Minneapolis). As a single library it holds the most recent books and media. Simply amazing. organized and clean. Children's area is jaw dropping. Graphic Novel selection is A+. Service people are excellent. Only issue I have so far is the somewhat anaemic art section, but we can probably find those books at the UI.
  • Modern clean wifi is a bit inconsistent . Can get painfully slow at times - could be faster and more reliable . 10/18 wifi speed absolutely aweful
  • Thanks to our library, I save $$ in printer and printer ink expense by only paying 15 cents a page when I occasionally need a page. The library staff is always helpful if it is a larger print job by using override key and saving my fumbling efforts at putting in spare change. As a bonus, there's always a book or two (or three) to check out as I leave.
