I think this library is just okay. Their video section has grown tremendously since I was a little child. They've included recent titles so if you don't want to shell out the money to rent, this is a great alternative. I think if you want to research, you can find at least one book for what you want. Don't expect a great variety or several copies. What I dislike about this library is checking things out. When I was younger, they use to stamp on cards to put in the envelope slots on the book. Then they changed to just taping a piece of paper on the book and stamping the return date there. Now they've taken to printing out a receipt and just tucking it in between pages of the book. This is not useful in that you can easily lose that receipt and not know when the due date is. I could rather they keep with the old system or at least put a card slot in the book to keep that receipt in. Also, there are times when I go to check out books and am asked to pay a fee for a book I've borrowed months ago, while other times in between then, I was never told that I returned any books late. Seems pretty fishy to me.
