  • Don’t miss this tour! The building started as a jail, converted to a college and now includes one of the most picturesque tiny libraries I’ve ever seen.  more »
  • Quirky, interesting building with a wealth of history. Booked the tour (only about $15) and it made the visit that much more enjoyable. Highlight of the trip!  more »

  • Amazingly friendly staff, wonderful story and crafts hosted for the kids quest Saturdays. Also being surrounded by the history of the building and the books is surreal. I can't wait to go back and actually take the tour!!!
  • We did the guided tour with Sara and it was very nice. She explained very well, gave us some time to look around and the place itself is interesting. Beautiful library (free entry).
