Visitors often comment on how charming the Nichols Library is. What’s surprising, then, is that more people spend time enjoying its charms. It’s the perfect place to do some personal business. With our Wi-Fi network, plug-ins for electronics, and fax, scanning and printing capabilities, the library would make a perfect office on the fly. Just the thing for visitors or locals who need a quiet place to work. We can accommodate small meetings during library hours (just be sure to call ahead). Mom’s with kids? Our kid’s nook has toys a-plenty to keep your toddler occupied for a spell. And if you have kids or grand kids who would enjoy some read-aloud or sing-along time, talk with us! Or just come by for a bit to sit and read. There’s nothing like sitting in a pleasant space and letting the imagination run free for re-charging one’s mental batteries. Find one of our comfy chairs by the fireplaces and settle in. Take this quick virtual tour to find your favorite cozy corner.
