  • A combination of grand architecture, stunning views, friendly staff, and well maintained shelves. What a lovely library!
  • Great place to visit. Lots of history in this small town. Try to run up the steps to get a great view of this small town.
  • Small town, Pepe? Bet it is a metropolis compared to the little stinkhole you're from in southern Mexico. The Jackson County Library was once the county courthouse. It is a magnificent edifice incomparably maintained on the heights overreigning the town of Sylva. Thank goodness and whomever is responsible for making this the county library. C'est magnifique! And it is a very fine library staffed by most sociable young women. A treasure. Makes me proud to be a Sylvanian.
  • This is a great library with a lot to offer. There are so many volumes already and more available on request in a few days or less. The upstairs houses adult and YA fiction and non fiction, as well as Reference and the computer labs. The balconies upstairs are a favorite, only because the views are impeccable and it's a prefectly quiet place to read. All the staff there are welcoming and helpful!
  • The staff here is great, they are very welcoming. As a high schooler I like to hangout in the Teen Area, which is well maintained. The only problem I have with the Teen Area is the Old People Possy, which hangs around here at times. Pretty sure that they are mostly Pedophiles, but I'm not the one to judge. Overall, it is a great place to hangout and do homework or whatever you have to do. :)
