    See that woman in the chair... She must be having a difficult day. She sarcastically asked me if I need water bc I've cleared my throat a few times. If something bothers you change what YOU can.

    In 1995, the Central Library was renamed John Henry Faulk Central Library in honor of local writer and free speech hero John Henry Faulk. Check out the extensive vinyl collection on the first floor.
