  • Downtown location is me and my daughters favorite. We have also visited the Glenwood branch and received similar helpfulness.  more »
  • I'm not from the area, but I love visiting libraries. This one was impressive with its two stories. Quiet, and kept up well. It was nice to be able to escape the summer heat and read for a few minutes...  more »
  • A very friendly, modern, well-supplied library. Knowledgeable staff, plenty of help, computer access, fine collection, well-run.  more »

  • Has a good selection and not to far from my home. I'm not the biggest fan of going Downtown to go to the library but at least the parking is free for the first hour. Also to not thrilled by the idea of parking in a parking garage, the stairs smell like pee. But when you move things are going to be different. There is a park right behind it with a cafe, ice cream, looks like a nice spot to visit.
  • Absolutely no parking available for a 15-passenger van. Public parking is restricted to 6'7”, which is too short for large vehicles. Street parking is pathetic, were it not blocked off anyway.
  • As far as the facility itself and what the library offers; it is great. They have a vast selection which is easy to navigate and find what you want. The building is very beautiful, but it smells like pee, smoke, and BO. The second floor is worse, maybe because the free computers are up there. Also, be prepared to have a lot of homeless people mean muggin you when you walk in if you are clean cut. I don't mind this, but when they walk around yelling on their cell phones, it can get a bit annoying. I don't hang out. I get what I need and get the heck out of there. Its a shame, but what can you do?
  • A warm, welcoming learning environment, as mentioned times before.
  • I had some time to kill in Greensboro, and my son and I landed at this library right at story time with Mr. Pete. He is the best!! He plays the guitar and dances around with the children in between stories. We will definitely be glad to make the 45 min. trip to see Mr. Pete again soon.
