  • Would be better if they bought back the cafe. Otherwise, it's awesome, especially the places that they renovated, like the hall on the first floor on the right.
  • Really nice library and they have a great selection of books great place to sit relax and enjoy a book
  • I went to this library for the first time when I was 16 in 1960. This is an excellent example of Beaux Art architecture, and is a gem on Logan Square, with a magnificent collection of books, including a whole room devoted to their music department. Their rare books on the third floor includes Incunabula, cuneiform tablets, letters of Charles Dickens, letters of Presidents. European and Oriental manuscripts, autograph manuscripts and letters of Edgar Allan Poe, and numerous other first editions of Coleridge, Shaw. Kipling Swinburne Twain, and Oscar Wilde, among others. The rare books department was also gifted .
  • Pictures and print department is unparalleled.
  • I love the kids section , they have toons of books in different language which is awesome because I'm teaching my girls Spanish .
