    Welcome, I’m Steve, manager of Franklinton Branch. One of my favorite books is Neuromancer by William Gibson. My favorite film is Blade Runner. I enjoy tinkering with computers, working in my yard and garden and spending time with my family.

    Stop by – I'd love to show you what we offer at Franklinton.
