Very quiet and small community library. Signed up for a membership and the staff was extremely helpful. Great old fashioned library like I remember when I was young!

As an end of the school year treat, the 8 year old whom I tutor chose this library as her "field trip." The library has so much more to offer than just books: there are computers, building blocks, kids play area, movies, and an "imagination station." And of course, silly, there are books....after all. reading is FUNdamental!
