This is one of the most comprehensive libraries I've been to. There selection is huge and they cover just about any topic. They have audio, video, conferences, events. If you need time for yourself away from noise and busy life, this is a great option.

Love going to the library to read! Always activities for adults and children especially during the summer! Love the fact that it's across from my job and lunch time is a relaxing moment with the fountain outside.
