  • Pandemic - I continued remote delivery to automated locker, with occasional car-service at the Main (no branches in our system). Reliable, consistent, great selection.

  • The library is remodeling the building. Best feature is the Learning Center - a large classroom with moveable tables and chairs. It is great for art and music activities. I always love the library...

  • This is a fun place to spend an afternoon outbespecially with the kids. They have tons of books for whatever mood and interests. I think the only flaw is that a lot of the movies are really scratched up and dirty. We have asked if it was possible to buff them but they said they can't so they end up putting it behind the counter to reshelve when I leave. The ones we have tried don't play or skip so we finally had to stop getting movies. But, as I said that is my only issue with the library the rest is wonderful.
  • The TPL is one of my favorite places to go with my kids. It free, the staff are friendly. My kids have a wonderful time. Very organized and easy to find things. Very large selection of book, movies, audiobooks, and more.
  • Great place! I could spend a lifetime there and never be bored. The area around it needs some serious investment though. It reminds me of Washington DC, you walk out of a government building there and it feels like there is no government.
  • The customer service there was amazing thank you so much for straightening out our cards
  • I live that the team rooms can be reserved and cancelled again online! Those rooms come in handy for doing homework when there are so many other distractions at home. Love it! Everyone is so helpful too! Thanks so much!
