I always love to drop in to the Dwight Public Library. Love the new Book Nook outside this year, where used books are discounted for sale. Lovely Muskoka chairs to sit in to read outside too.

The best, friendliest library staff in Ontario!! Very helpful, great selections, computers, DVD, and books too. Need a larger return box though. Often overflowing on Mondays.

If you are in cottage country for a while, drop into the library. It is truly delightful, with tables and chairs made of logs. There is programming for children. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
