I've used the Fig Garden Library for so many years now, I remember checking out children's books (which they have a nice selection of, by the way). This library has plently of books to suit anyone's tastes, and you can have books out for two weeks at a time (with the option to renew). They also have many computers, both for research use and as a search engine for books at any library. There are also plenty of resource books for research, but they cannot be checked out. Luckily it's quiet and there are tables and such to study.
