  • The library itself is gorgeous. The kid's area is kind of scarce, but large. My biggest issue is the amount of homeless people outside of the library. There were at least over 20, bags and all. We're ...  more »

  • Best library. Great collection of books, movies, music, computer lab. Now it has expanded to included interactive mediums. The first floor has a Creation Station where you can design and print 3D models. 2nd floor has a Teen studio for graphic design, music production, film production and arts & crafts. The section for the young ones is under renovation and will include an interactive studio as well.
  • I LOVE this library, the staff is so nice and helpful. They are very insightful on the different collection of books they have from various genres to different languages. I would highly recommend this library.
  • There are librarian floor walkers with radios on each floor. I was amazed that they have a high level of customer service on each floor. They helped me find all the call numbers I needed, directed me to which floors and sections I would need to go to, and searched intensively for the old government documents that they were even having a hard time finding... and the elevators were clean and fast too.
  • We visited the makerspace - Creation Station lab - located on the first floor of the Main Library in downtown Fort Lauderdale. It's a great learning space for kids. There's 3D printers, a gadget lab, virtual reality experience, and free technology classes. The Creation Station Business Center is located on the 7th floor and opened in 2016. But the GovGarage parking and GovAnnex parking lot are not free, either pay hourly or $5-$8 flat fee on certain days. The Main Library is centrally located among other tourist attractions. The Museum of Science and Discovery, NSU Art Museum and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts are around 5 blocks away from the Main Library.
  • Amazing library. It is huge with several floors of books, cds, dvds, computers, computer programs, and artwork. It now has an amazing Creation Station though I have not gone since before its start.
