There's nothing like a good library!
I love being able to order books from other libraries. Since it's so small, do you take your kids or leave them with your hubby? When we go to one of the smaller libraries, I always think, 'I should have left my toddler at home!' LOL
Quoting Jeremmy:I like ours. Its small, but the ppl are helpful and we can loan out books from all over the state.

Our library system is composed of the main branch which added on a play room and completly redid the layout of the children's section from when I was a kid and added on another story and then one branch in Lauraville, OH. So yeah it's pretty small, of course since most people probably have no clue where these old rural places in SE Central OH are.... lol. But it's big enough for the town we're near (about a 40 min. to 1 hour drive) as the town is thankfully small and I think will stay that way forever.
We have 4 libraries that are all connected & if you become a Friend of the library & donate money you can have access the Texas Tech Library too. They also have ebooks & online audio books that you can check out virtually. They do inter library loans, have classes & activities off & on all year long for all ages. I love our Library system!
we love our library!!!
it isone town over like 10 min away, and we could not survive without it! we are there at least once a week, they do tons of activities for all ages! they have storytime of course every week, and then art days, like winter art, crazy hat days, cinderella parties, dog training events, reading to tearapy dogs, knitting, science class, video making class, computer class, these are for the older kids, like 9 and up. my son is 6 but we have things to do there all the time! the set up is amazing, every month they do an awesome i spy case, a new theme every month, its really cute! they have a whole section dedicated to homeschooling or if you want to teach your child to read, and they have awesome classes for adults too! in the summer the events never stop! they even have a carnival for the kids! and the summer reading program is by far amazing, the kids gets a prize every week they finish a book, and also prizes at the end of the summer at a whole end of the summer reading show. a comidian and author were there and they gots tons of things at the end, a free ice cream coupon, free admission to an amusment park for the day, and lots of other stuff. they are definatly part of our homeschooling experience.
