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.

My daughter has been attempting to find a book for nearly a year. Very few in print. The staff here wasted no time and within a week she had the book. Thank you !!

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

This library is a great little gem! The children's area is always stocked with crayons and popular coloring pages and offers a train table, blocks, and other play items. They have plenty of computers for adults in a separate area and a pretty good selection of books. They also have a ton of magazines for sale for a dime and... More

The staff is helpful in that if you're looking for something they don't have they'll have it sent from another branch. They also are good about contacting you when books arrive that you're on a wait list for or are being sent to you.
