All branches of the TLCPL are worth visiting, and the main branch downtown offers a plethora of things to see and do. Kids activities, cooking classes, geneology research, local maps and history, and, oh, yeah, crack open a good book.

This place is huge. Filled with books and history. Our kids prefer this library over all of the others even the brand new ones. They get so excited when we go to this one. It is a magical place to them.
