Books. Remember them? They do have a computer but it's so nice to see the real thing. All the staff is helpful, friendly and smiling! And they have Therapy Dogs who come in so the children can read to THEM!

Beautiful and immaculate. Small selection but serene as it should be however staff seemed quiet ill at ease. Not "customer" oriented . Made me feel like I was " beneath" them so it did tarnish the experience.

Very calming atmosphere, could use a few more books but in such a small town, you wouldn't expect them to have as many as they do. Many historical pieces inside the building and it always looks picture perfect. Very nice.
