The internet at our rental was out so we stopped by here to use the internet really quick. They were nice and friendly. Internet was $5/ hour. We only needed it for a few minutes, but it's a nice donation.

This is a wonderfully quiet library to just curl up with a good book. The library has computers upstairs if you need to surf the web. The view from the upper floor is breath taking

I believe so - there were High School girls doing homework on computers on the 2nd floor, but the library lost power when we were there. Best to contact the library directly.
