Has everything a library needs and your card allows you to check out material in several other local libraries. I have found staff here, however, to be rather indifferent. Absolutely no need for a new building, conveniently located at 2nd and James in downtown Geneva.

Knowledge On Everything I am in the Library weekly for new issue books in print, videos and audio books. All the staff are greatly interested and competent in getting good answers to whatever is asked for. It is just amazing, the zeal that all the staff there have. The service I use the most is their Overdrive app to Checkout audiobooks via my iPhone to listen to while I'm outside running around Mill Creek paths 5 days a week. Overdrive is a huge innovation to give book access to Geneva residents with busy lives a way to Tap and Read or Hear hundreds of books that satisfy our ongoing desire for knowledge. I think the Overdrive app would be of huge benefit to parents of our youth to get kids today easily plugged in to reading or listening to books for attaining growing knowledge about their lives ahead as adults. Thank you to all the fantastic people there!
