The building itself is worth a trip. Found a great selection of history books about local places and events. I remember visiting this library over 30 years ago and think they have done a great job maintaining the building.

Of course it's a small library, but so what? The collection and the wonderful staff more than make up for that. And when was the last time you went to a library with elegant stained-glass windows?

Stopped in here during Frozendale 2012 and was greeted cheerfully. It was a cute little library with a good selection and friendly staff. Plus easy to get to and plenty of parking.
