The Atkinson Public Library, with its 6,875 square feet, more than doubled the library space the city previously had available. The replacement library, organized around a central entrance, contains a reading area with a fireplace, a children’s reading area, a continuing education room, a junior room for the city’s youth, and a heritage room containing microfilm and local newspapers. The library is equipped with the latest technological features, such as computers with high-quality wireless internet service, and other audio-visual devices. In addition, the library offers a drive-through window so that patrons can drop off or pick up books without getting out of their vehicles.
