  • While the Broward County Main Library is a vital component of the city, it is also a hangout for the large homeless community in Ft. Lauderdale. Because of that, it is an unsafe area to go near. The h...  more »

  • I cannot believe how much our libraries offer. They are not just a building full of books. They are very high-tech and also offer many classes.  more »

  • Things have gotten better at the library now that the construction is finished. Sadly the the palm trees in the atrium have probably seen much better days. As far as libraries go the stacks are pretty well maintained and the librarians are very helpful, although the front desk staff can be a little surly. If you use the ILL service make sure to check your return dates as often they will arrive overdue. Make sure to stop in the bookshop, I've added to my collection of fiction and classical music for mere pennies.
  • Loud LOUD LOUDER! This is the worst library I've ever been to. It so loud (for a library that is). What bothers me the most is the staff. I mean, I understand how some patrons might not know about the code of conduct inside a public library. But the staff is the loudest. They don't know the meaning of the word "whisper". They talk loudly on the phone. They talk loudly on their obnoxiously annoying walkie talkies. They talk loud among themselves. They talk loud when they're helping someone find a book. They are so annoying and disturbing. Then comes the harassing security guard. If you are leaning back into your chair, he'll rudely tap you on your shoulder and order you to sit upright. Excuse me, what? Worst library ever. Period.
  • One of the best public libraries in South Florida. Very good selection of books. Large, open interior. Helpful staff.
  • Things has gotten much better with customer service. Once they figure out how to get all the scratched DVDs off the shelves it would be even better.
  • I love the library- you can also buy great books for almost nothing! Employees are so helpful too.
