“A Beautiful Community Library!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

If you have a rainy day while in Haines, take the time to explore this wonderful library. It is a newer building with much to offer anyone. There is a great children's area for families to enjoy. The books, movies, and free internet is a great help to someone who is in the middle of a vacation. The ability to check in on your emails is so helpful.

There are dedicated reading areas with tables and chairs, so you can spread out if you have work to do. It is open in the evenings as well as having hours on weekends.

It is a beautiful area to enjoy a book, discover more about Haines on the internet, and get some work accomplished.

Take the time to walk and enjoy!

“Haines Public Library”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

While being docked in Haines, Alaska we were advised by our tour guide that the town library offered free internet access to even visitors. Since the internet is very expensive on our ship, and we had a family pet what was ill at home, this was great! We were able to email and check on our pet's status, and touch base with our house sitter. We were also able to check in with family members and keep them abreast of our vacation. What a wonderful service to offer to visitors to your community - it speaks volumes of Haines. Thank you.
