  • Beautiful library. Great selection of books. Polite and helpful staff. Third floor does genealogy studies as well.
  • I LOVE going to Willard. The staff is so friendly and helpful and if I need a book that they don't have they get it for me. I enjoy the overall atsmophere of the building and the programs are awesome - if I remember to go.
  • This is a beautiful library that's worth visiting just for the architecture! It's also extremely valuable when researching local history, genealogy, etc.
  • Great big library! Beautiful outside and inside. I have been only to the children's section which is in the basement. Well designed wooden stairs will take you down to the basement . The interior is shaped into a gallery which your kids would love. The librarian was awesome. Very friendly. They have a lot of puzzles and small toys that your kids can play with. There is a wooden doll house too. Worth paying a visit with your kids. There is a huge convention hall/exhibition center beside the children's section in the basement which you can book for some functions too.
  • The Lady in Grey. Haunted but beautiful inside and out. You can smell and feel history. Great time.
