We are snowbirds who come to PCB for 6 weeks in the winter. This year I decided to visit the local library to inquire about a library card. For an annual fee of $15 you may obtain a card (for those who live out of state) and use all services in the network, which also include the main library in... More

I had to use the computers there last year and they have nice equipped library. You don't have to be a member or live there to visit it.

Our condo didn't come with wifi and going to a restaurant ever time we wanted to use our I-pad wasn't going to work. We went to the library and they gave us guest passes to use their computers. This is a great option for those who are visiting in the area. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

This is a great library. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to explore thoroughly due to a prior engagement, but they had a well-rounded craft book selection and the library was very clean. I also enjoyed the free to a good home section outside.

Stopped by just to see what their library was all about. At noon, I was the only customer present. It's quite small with not a huge number of books. It's a pleasant place to go, but I didn't notice anything appealing. Won't go again.

I took my son to the library on a rainy Thursday morning. While looking for books in the children's section, there was a group of moms having a mom meeting of some type. During this time, they all has small pre-school age children. They were allowing their children to use the library as a play gym instead of a library.... More

Visited the PCB Library for the first time and instantly fell in love with the facility. Very modern, clean, great selection of materials, nice literacy programs, automation, and knowledgeable and helpful staff. Will visit often.

Few know John R. "Dick" Arnold, who the local high school is named after, started the orginal library on the beach. That one has long since been replaced, but it was Dick's wish to let tourists in the early days have access to a book while they were enjoying the beach while their kids played in the sand. That is... More
