Staff is excellent, access to books excellent, and now a card holder can access movies and shows online through their system. One couldn't ask for more.

I don't live in Staunton, but I make a special trip to the Staunton Library in April and October for their book sale. It is the best-organized, best-stocked and friendliest library book sale in the area. Books are arranged in alphabetical order, and volunteers are...More

It's a really friendly library, great children's section downstairs. The decor, the layout, and the variety of kids' books, especially the little reading book, all make it a good place to spend an hour or so. They have a lot of events throughout the month....More
