  • Another great public library with tours. Highly recommend going on the short tour and learning about the architecture. So much of the detail has meaning
  • Outstanding library with outstanding staff who will go out of their way to help!
  • Nice renovation but I wish I could give it a zero. Winos camp out in the restroom and the cops on guard there make the hairs stand up on your neck. Very rude, aggressive, and arrogant. They must pick the worst cops in the city to work there. Makes you feel more like a criminal than a patron. Some (not all) of the staff are rude and unfriendly. The place smells like a refugee camp, very musty and sweaty mixed with genitals (no joke). Unmatched selection offsets mean atmosphere but frankly I'd pass on it.
  • It's great for a quick run for a popular book, but not a great research sight.
  • Great place for a quick run or to pick up book you reserved.
