Vibrant childrens' section offers MANY creative and varied opportunities for local entertainment: regular story hours, reading contests, puppet shows, even parades or special events like Chinese New Year crafts and food samplings. Computer resources include Lego Star Wars (oh my-I had hoped we'd read here today) in addition to more cerebral pursuits, audiobooks, dvds and vhs.

The younger set benefits from themed craft boxes that may be checked out to explore specific senses or ideas, and of course the Thomas the Tank Engine table.

Very clean without the funky smell that accompanies big city libraries. Beware of the parking matrons, though. The City of Boone will mark your tires and ticket you if you stay in one spot for more than an hour with the FREE permit provided at the circulation desk. Just ask as soon as you arrive.

My only complaint is the 'Bistro' online search engine. Never seems to provide matches based on subject matter.

The Watauga County Public Library is not a big library, but they have a good selection. They are part of a regional library so they can request books from other neaby libraries for you. The Watauga library will request it and have it brought to them so you don't have to go anywhere else. The best part of this library is their awesome website. You can search for books and see their availability. You can request to hold a book and they will have it pulled the next time you come by the library. You can put yourself on the waiting list for a book that is not available and they will call you when it is available and hold it for you. You can also renew your books online which means no more late fees!
