  • The architecture alone is reason to visit this beautiful building in downtown Nashville. Art shows add to the ambience and the interior design is breathtaking. 
  • I am fortunate enough to work around the corner from this beautiful city library. I go here often at lunch to check out books, or, sometimes just eat out in the courtyard. Large selections of books. I...  more »

  • It's laughable how folks use ratings to complain about things not directly related to topic. Yes the main branch is downtown and there are homeless people around but that's what happens in larger towns. NPL facilities, programs, apps, technology, employees are top notch. Our ever growing city has an outstanding library. Take advantage of it and you won't be disappointed!
  • I wish more people frequented this library. They have great rooms for reading and studying, a FANTASTIC children's area, a beautiful courtyard, and a Provence right next door. I love that they have readings, but the one I attended was poorly read by the actress.
  • Besides being beautiful and huge, this library makes a point to have lots of varied, usable spaces. There are totally quiet spots as well as spots in more trafficked areas, and everywhere you go there are easily accessible outlets for your laptop and chargers. I also appreciate the rotating art exhibits on the second floor. A nice place to spend ten minutes or four hours.
  • The Nashville Public Library, a recipient of the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, is a jewel, especially compared to the old main library that was in the Ben West building. The current building, opened in 2001, is beautiful with a very friendly staff that is more than happy to help.
  • Great place for kids and book-loving adults! By borrowing books from the library, I've probably saved hundreds of dollars for books I would have bought otherwise.
