The staff is excellent.

“Been saving money and getting my books here!”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

The Taunton library is one of the older buildings in the downtown area. Located behind the new courthouse, it is open most nights until 8 pm. They do a good job of getting hold items to you and often times instead of digging around the stacks, I will put a few books on hold and get them as they call. They also have several computers available for use. The children's room has also got a great selection for kids and there are special programs periodically

“A Library with everything ....even Ghosts”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 via mobile

Built in 1903 by Albert Ross from a Grant from Andrew Carnegie Taunton Library has it all.
It houses thousands of books as well as provides Electronic Titles for reading. Its media center provides computers ,micro fiche and a comprehensive genealogy department and history center for all .The libraray hosts seminars and activities for all ages.I personally attended a seminar on paranormal activity here and I heard EVP recordings from the library proving Ghostly voices heard in the 4th floor Stacks and Eerie voices coming from the hallway downstairs between the Elevator and the children's room.
