This is a great library with multiple resources for locals and tourists. They also have a nice computer room and some study rooms that are excellent for small groups up to 4-5. I love this library.

Nice and quiet, very comfortable, good lighting, great view of Scoville Park. Endless resources, and a great photo and art exhibit to boot.
