  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Best library system of 2017! The downtown branch is beautiful and has lots of great reading nooks. The kids section is also a big hit with puppet shows, story times, crafts, etc.
  • Awesome public library with a lot to offer for kids. My kids had a blast and we got to watch an old school puppet show which was cool. Will go again when visiting.
  • A beautiful building. We only used the children's area. It was amazing especially on a very hot day it was a great break. There was quite a bit of homeless population outside the building but they didn't seem threatening.

Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.
