Pretty large library and beautiful building. However, the main issue in this library is very dirty desks and tables. The things are sticking under the desks and chairs are disgusting and made me sick. If you want to use desks to study, You will definitely need to bring with yourself disinfecting wipe!

I went to the library and had great service at the start, but when I went to check out I forgot my library card so this person to it upon her self to be very rude to a kid/pre-teen. I really hope you see this and realize that even though we are younger we should still be treated with respect.

Half of the staff are nice while the other half are rude. Woman employee with 2 different hair colors (white and brownish) who was working in the children's section glares at the kids playing in the kids corner and tells them to be quite because they are being distruptive when the kids weren't being that loud.
