    Great little used book store (Library Shop on Main) on the first floor. Most books for sale for only $1.

    You'll hand them your library card and they don't hand it back; they put it on the counter. If they never look or talk to you ... SCORE! If you're looking for rude, you've hit the jackpot here!

    If you go to the library before 6, and park in the parking deck, bring your ticket inside and have it validated at the security desk. Parking is free for 1 hour with validation.

    There's a delightful gift shop and used book store on the first floor. The Library on Main has many books priced at $1 or less.

    Signing up for a card is free and can save you lots of money. Treat it like a credit card and take care of it. The library has ebooks, CDs, books, movies, free computer/craft/exercise classes, etc.
