The 15,000 sq. ft. Matthews Branch Library is part of the Matthews Town Center, which also houses the Matthews Town Hall. Because the Matthews Town Center is located next to the old Train Depot, a train theme can be found throughout the library. Special features include a children's computer area shaped like a larger-than-life toy train and a large, crackling fireplace framed by a wood-paneled mantelpiece and original artwork.
