  • Libraries are awesome and this is a good one! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. There are comfy and well-lit places to sit and read/study. There is WiFi (free), computers, and printing (for a charge). A cafĂ© is available if you get hungry or thirsty! All of this right on several of the bus lines as well.
  • I love to work here. The library has a quiet atmosphere. Book collection is great, too. I have found a number of interesting books to read.
  • Honestly the place is great. They have so many movies and books to rent from. But recently whenever I come to the library the staff is undeniably rude and snobby. Now I'm not saying all but some of them are. Not only is it disrespectful but annoyingly frustrating.
  • One of the best public library I have been to in USA. Excellent environment, very helpful staff. Amazing collection of books. Available desktops for public use. Just found out, you can even borrow laptop with internet device, If resident of Champaign,IL
  • Great library! Plenty of books, DVDs, Blu-rays to borrow. Nice place to study too. They have programs for babies, children, teens and adults.
