Best Library 

Westlake Porter Public Library

We can see why Westlake's sleek, state-of-the-art library was voted the second best in the nation in Hennen's 2004 American Public Library Ratings. Numerous copies of best-sellers means you don't have to wait three months for the latest page-turner. Rows and rows of CD bins are stuffed with new and classic pop, hip-hop, and classical discs. The DVD shelves are lined with classics (Gimme Shelter), popular new releases (XXX: State of the Union), and hard-to-find foreign flicks. There's a café serving sandwiches and muffins, a reading garden, free WiFi access, and plenty of quiet nooks to peacefully kick back and read for hours. We'd shout for joy, but this is still a library, after all, so shhhh.
