It's a great place to sit and read for a while. The librarians are friendly and helpful. Nice sculptures and gardens outside. Nice meeting rooms with different activities. Their online systems allows you to put books on hold and you get a recorded message that your book is waiting to be picked up til (date). And- they are open weekends!

Beautiful, clean, great programs for children. I was opposed to building a new library in this town, but I love it!

There are plenty of nice nooks to enjoy a good book with. The librarians are more aloof than the smaller libraries in the Bay County system.

It's new - kept up very well. The children's area is well kept and the librarian's are very helpful. The computer area is in a room of it's own with no one allowed to stay on the systems forever.

We enjoy visiting the library, searching for each boo. Staff is always helpful. They even play with the puppet theater and in the boat.

Wirt Library is spacious and beautiful. The librarians are helpful. The library offers a range of services - children's programming, computer seminars for seniors, research assistance and a great selection of books.
