The Dr. Walter Chestnut Library is a unique place to visit. Built in 1912 as a federal post office, it still has its historical features; dome shaped windows and a beautiful staircase. The view from the upper level is worth the climb since you can view both bridges from this area.
All three levels have been renovated for use in today's library, as well as the clock tower that chimes the hour and occasionally, music. Two floors feature an adult and children's library while a third level boasts an art gallery and historical room.
Our special collections:
The historical room holds an excellent collection of historical and genealogical materials.
