  • It's my first time in downtown Nashville on a bright Saturday afternoon. Happened to be a convention happening in the galleries all about writing and fiction and fans of fiction. Plenty of parking for the day and helpful staff getting my way around. Had a lot of fun! The library is a swell welcome and first stop to those coming into Nashville!
  • Awesome library with a great staff. Great children’s section. Ebook selection wonderful as well.
  • 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. Also note that if you take your parking ticket in and stamp it, the first 1.5 hours in the attached library parking garage are free.
  • The makerspace area and technology programming for teens is phenomenal. I loved the collection of puppets including all the art installations you can play with in the children's area. There a beautiful courtyard where you can work outside.
  • The architecture is amazing on it's own, but it's also filled with helpful people and TONS of books for everyone
