Small critique: I really think they should have a "visit us" or "location" button at the top that has all the basics like hours, admission cost if there is one, and where they are located. If you are the type of place that considers themselves a tourist destination your website should have this info easily found.

So it goes.

On their blog they have Collected Reviews of the Vonnegut Library Opening
