A great experience to attend and photograph this monumental event. 100 Years of serving the public with great educational experiences, a place where computers are available to the public, and great books for all to read.

This is a really nice library, with well stocked areas for reading, or information gathering. My only disappointment was learning they do not stay open past 5pm.

The business section of his library rivals ATL and CHGO for information I was amazed at what periodicals they had. The last few years the library budget has gotten tight but when I did my graduate work, I lived in this library. My kids grew up in this library , that is why they never were afraid to do research...

The Genealogical Library on the third floor is excellent. If one has a library card, then many online resources are available at no cost. The best known of these is the Ancestry environment. The audiobook and video portions on the first floor are excellent. The staff is willing to help and very friendly.

Everything was modern and the library offered many alternatives. They have special events, musical events, speakers and authors, art displays, historical research area and genealogy department in addition to a huge book collection.
