When I travel I always download ebooks from the library to enjoy while at the pool or just relaxing. Great selections.

Our library used to be a Wal-Mart. This library is awesome. It has a cafe, bookstore, children's section, adult section, printing services and meeting rooms. Pretty on the inside and beautiful on the outside.
