Clean, free WiFi, and a simple place to chill. If you need a library, or just internet, it's worth a stop.

This little library is fantastic. A great variety of books and some for sale for 25 cents!! Well worth a visit and the WIFI is free. A donation is suggested and well worth it.

Great place to chill out, read, and enjoy the common areas in a beautiful building amidst wonderful art. At Christmas it was decorated as if a private home. Just wonderful for such a small town,
