  • Tourists should not be thick at public libraries, and this is not a great example. But if you're in the neighborhood, take a look at this, who combines the Victorian era (the ten Comandimenti on marble!) et la epoca moderna (a tent covering them on electric control).

  • A modern library, which is connected with a new building on the beautiful old building.

  • Worth a visit just to see the architecture. A wonderful design for a modern, vital and active public library. One of the best in the U.S.  more »
  • Great place to study. It’s peaceful and the rooms they have are up to date. Free WiFi and anyone with a library card could use their computers for free. I have one flaw though and that is they don’t have that much room for sitting down. It could get over crowded at some points and it’s hard to find a seat; especially on the weekdays.
  • We love this library! Especially the 3rd floor for kids. We’ve been taking our two daughters since an early age. They have two gerbils which the kids love to watch. The staff is super helpful and pleasant to work with. Really enjoy going there.
  • Beautiful place & lots of different books collection. Employee are so helpful..
  • *Edit Coming here for three weeks and no problems with me having a backpack and messenger bag for my laptop. Now all of a sudden one particular employee decides to pick on me because I apparently look "homeless". Really? What is this world coming to? I spend maybe 2 hrs a day there to charge my devices and use the Wi-Fi to look for work. Kept to myself, never bothered anyone, but apparently I look like a bum dyke and that is against the rules. Have video of the old prick, smug as can be telling me he is the only manager on duty after asking to talk to a superior and if I did not leave he was going to waste the police time by having them come and escort me out. Since this place is going to discriminate, I can no longer recommend. Shame. Up until this incident my experience here was swell. But long behold there is always that one bad apple. One star. Original review👇 Can't think of anything to fault this place on. One of the best libraries I have ever been to. Amazing selection of books and movies. Lots of quite areas to study or just relax and enjoy the free WiFi. Bathrooms are clean and staff are very polite.
  • I love this library. Modern architecture, open spaces, and a tad bit of historical architecture that almost makes you think you're in a Harvard study hall. 10 free pages printed per day with free minuteman library membership, then 15 cents a page. I usually don't struggle too much to park in street as cambridge resident, but it might be hard if you are not. There are tennis courts in the same lot, but I'm not sure how to book them or if they are free. You can check out up to 20 DVD for free each day! ...and even xbox games or CDs. books are checkout for 3 weeks, DVDs 1 or 2 weeks depending on how recent. My personal favorite is audio books on portable players you can borrow (use your own earphones).
