Libraries give people a place to gather and a sense of community. In addition, they allow people an opportunity to find jobs, research topics that interest them, experience new ideas, and get lost in wonderful stories.

There are several ways to give back. The most common ways are to volunteer and donate books and materials you no longer use.
“The architects did a nice job! It is such a unique place! This is the best mix of old and the new. You have both the building and the modern activities and community engagement of the library. I enjoy every minute of being there.”
“I always like to take my family here to spend time. It is always very neat and clean. It is a place that is fun for all ages. The building also has a lot of history!”
“The library that was built is absolutely stunning. This could be considered more of a palace than a library! Everything just looks so eloquent. The building itself is worth seeing even if you have no interest in books. The place is stunning both inside and outside.”
We always want to hear back from the community and find out ways to improve ourselves and the community we serve.
