  • Omg, this library is awesome. It was easy for me to find the room to find what I books I needed. The staff was more than helpful. The only thing that I found confusing was the parking garage. It came out behind the library. There were signs to assist, but the last sign took me inside of a different facility.
  • i don't like this library that much. i wasn't really paying that much attention to the materials. i looked around didn't really find that much. i like other library along the 11 bus. and it is the cave library. they have apple computer and software you are allowed to use them all day. and i did not the cafe at this library. you can go across the street to get a better scone or bagel. i think i bought some to drink here but i don't remember. they all have free wifi at public libraries 99% of them
  • Big branch! A little crowded in the evenings and weekends, especially Sunday's!
  • I can always find what I want or need!
  • Nice people. Great books. Lots of space. It's like being in that library in Beauty and the Beast minus the whole incoming French Revolution thing.

Where to stay in Lexington

Downtown Lexington offers accommodations ranging from budget to luxury, but for easier access to the area's famous horse parks and farms, consider staying just north of the city proper. Many rustic bed and breakfasts on the edge of town offer guests a chance to stay at a farmhouse or log cabin. These properties provide not only every comfort of home, but also much more privacy than a downtown hotelĀ could offer. To avoid driving to Lexington's major urban attractions, consider a hotel near the city's convention center.
