This really should be taken out of TripAdvisor as an attraction, because it is no longer in use as a library which has moved across the street to a beautiful new building.

Property is run down and rats roam all over at dusk, dirty disgusting they need to take the building down, or better transform it into something useful for the community.

If you build it, they will come -- this library is a magnificant space -- bright, airy, with lots of possibilities for private space as well. An abundance of resources and a fabulous coffee shop as a bonus! Well done!
