We love this library. AC in the summer. Close to the park. They rent fishing poles!!! Great book exchange and books for sale. Beautiful building. Great programs. We are lucky to live so close.

This library, though small, is a wonderful place for readers and writers. They have an extensive magazine collection and a variety of children and family activities. Writers will enjoy the peacefulness of the home's rooms and the inspiration that can be drawn from them.

Excellent library. Wonderful staff. If they don't have the book you're interested in they will have it brought to the library for you. I love my library.

This library is a gem. You can leave the library area and go up the stairs into the original Bacon family mantion to sit and read. Just a beautiful place for calming your mind

The Wyandotte Library is very nostalgic. The architecture is a joy to see. The staff is very friendly and helpful about their library as well as their city
