  • Six stars for the oldest tax-funded public library in the United States. Not only can you find a few hidden gems and classics, it's a terrific place to quietly get some work done remotely thanks to their consistent and reliable network connectivity. I'll echo the sentiments about the staff - always smiling and always helpful, they even accommodated allowing me to take a video call in a private room last summer, which was not only kind, but above and beyond. Kudos to Peterborough and it's A+ library, looking forward to seeing how the renovations turn out!
  • This is the oldest publicly funded library in this country. There is no question when you see it. It's beautiful. More importantly, there are many a rare and forgotten books both on the shelves and hidden away in the bowels of the old basement. The staff here are very helpful. Ask them for anything.
