This is the busiest place in town. Locals flow in and out with books and dvds. Visitors drop in to use a computer or the wi-fi or printers. Friendly staff, great sale book selection (25 cents each), and spectacular architecture and views.

The library is beautiful, and the staff is very open about offering free wi-fi to cruisers and tourists. It is a nice stop in a very nice town for a little break and some quiet, comfortable seating.
