It is a beautiful building and does not look like your "typical" library. The best part though is that it is full of books and so much more. Staff are very helpful and the space works well for just hanging out and enjoying the vibe!

I moved away from this library so I don't frequent this branch anymore. Always found the staff friendly and knowledgeable. There are plenty of available computers and not once did I experience any problems with computers, people, or any issues.

Don't miss making a visit here. There is much to see including valuable maps, displays and books, newspapers and magazines. The staff is dedicated to making this a real resource for the entire community. There is even a small cafe.
