The best, friendliest library staff in Ontario!! Very helpful, great selections, computers, DVD, and books too. Need a larger return box though. Often overflowing on Mondays.

Not only is the library very well appointed and well stocked (apparently with a strong focus on children and youth) but the daytime and evening presentations, workshops and courses that it offers are exemplary.

This library is a community service provider par none. The librarian and her staff are friendly, helpful and extremely resourceful. If the library doesn't have the book you want; they get it for you through inter library loans and notify you when it arrives. The books and magazines are geared to a large range of interests with recommended books on... More

The staff here are excellent - friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. The collection is up to date with many/mostly new titles plus some old faves. They are quick to get in new bestsellers. There is also a really good audiobook selection - this is a great option for driving to/from the cottage. They also host some interesting community events.

If you are in cottage country for a while, drop into the library. It is truly delightful, with tables and chairs made of logs. There is programming for children. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

If I had young kids, and was vacationing in the area, I'd definitely stop in for some quiet time (bug free! toilets clean!); the reading space is really friendly and the librarians were super nice. I am actually a middle-aged mom, so I really appreciated the library at a strategic spot on a nice walk through Dwight.
