  • Children's section is amazing and extremely kid friendly staff. Always activities going on while still promoting reading.
  • What a beautiful Library! It is so unique with the Books parking structure (which I originally though wasss the library), and their rooftop area. I was surprised we could go to the top floor to see it!
  • A friendly staff with a beautiful peaceful atmosphere... even if you don't want to check out a book, come in just to check this place out. I love libraries and this is easily in my top 5 nationally. Pro Tip: Go to the rooftop terrace.
  • Great kids section! Love that they have a coffeeshop downstairs too.
  • Beautiful, historic building. The security staff so nice and so welcoming. The Library staff, a few nice, but most are rude and could care less about being cordial. The biggest issue that this library needs to overcome is the influx of homeless who line up outside the doors each day after they are booted out of the City Mission. They take over all the computers and pretty much the entire third floor commons/reading area as well as any electrical outlets to charge their cell phones. Every table, computer and bathroom stall is occupied almost consistently throughout the day. Last week I walked into the men's room to find a man in his underwear and only his underwear washing himself at the sink. Very hard to find a quiet place to read, work, research, whatever. This is not a safe place for a young single woman or your children to be without someone looking out for them.
