  • This is simply a spectacular library. The building is old, well-cared for, and stunning. The courtyard on the second floor a peaceful oasis. They have a spot for people to gather to watch football or ...  more »
  • I love this place and it's a perfect venue to hold any type of gathering. I went for a documentary premier and had no idea the beautiful venue it was. I highly recommend it.  more »

  • Incredible children’s programs, the puppet shows daily are top notch quality. I love the community that this place fosters. Also, the genealogists in residence on the third floor are so great!
  • The most beautiful homeless hang out in Nashville!! Far superior to the one under the pedestrian bridge off first ave. Seriously, this place is disgusting! It smells like rotten garbage. It is a shame what is happening in this city...
  • It is advised to be cautious and courteous to the homeless that frequent the library as a Haven. But it is well worth it to enjoy the architecture, views, cozy study areas, massive book and media selection, art and cultural collections on display, and many other programs that this library branch provides to the public. It is one of my favorite spots in all Nashville to go to for many reasons, and I encourage anyone to visit.
  • Whenever I go to a new state or city I try to visit a library which I enjoy by far this is the white house of all the libraries I have been, a 30 minutes guest pass for the computer lab, there's a floor for everything almost anything you're there for just magnificent from the architectural design Down to the marble tiles if you're ever in Nashville check it out.
  • I am totally ashamed that after four years this is my first time at the main Nashville library. The whole place is great but the children's branch is particularly amazing!! It's essentially an indoor playground with a climbing wall. They have plenty of events for kids of all ages. We will definitely be back!
