The public library got its new home in 2001 and was the first building on the relatively new Village Commons area. The two-story building has a collection of about 145,000 books, and has ample space for computers and study areas.
There are countless programs for people of any age, and free Wi-Fi for card holders or guests. The library is quiet and spacious, and one must-see is a life-size fake tree that is in the back in the children's section.
Study rooms may be reserved, and there are also public meeting rooms in the library.
