I had a horrible experience TWICE at this library. I had just moved to Decatur and it was also my first time ever moving. When I first walked into the lobby of the library I was just amazed at the size of it and actually didn't notice the sign saying "please wait here untill called" that being the case..I stood in front of the sign and waited untill a library employee said "next" and walked up to the desk. The employee vey rudely said "you're not next..go wait in the lobby". This was said so crudely that I felt as inferior as if I didn't belong there. The only reason I stayed to still try to get a library card was for my daughter's sake. I then got my turn but was told they couldn't help me unless my husband was present (the utility bill only had his name on it)..So later during the week..my husband and I came back..only to get stuck going to the same hostile woman from the first time who just said "oh cant help you..they should have told you the first time that you need to bring in two utility bills with your name on it" I'm seriously about done with EVER comming back to this library..

This library is enourmous. Very relaxing here. Staff is so friendly and helpful. They always having a activity for the kids. their website is really good. easy to navigate and use. This is one library that won't disappoint you. they have computers with printers to use. they have copiers and offer fax service.
