I;ts a Library. Nice atmosphere. Very helpful staff. Kids have a very inviting area that makes you want to curl up with a book.

The librarians are extremely helpful. The Cumberland building is historic and pleasant to be in. They have a lot of community programs. It's easy to search for a reserve books on-line or in person. I wish they had a little more access to certain things (sheet music, scripts) but for a small town library, it's a treasure.

Whether you need a computer, free wi-fi, a free movie rental, an audio book, a digital book or just an old-fashioned hold-in-your-hands book, our library has it all. And if you can't find it at your local branch, the staff will help you get it elsewhere.
