  • What would life be like without a good library? Our Santa Monica Library is truly wonderful. Such selection of books, music and movies. Always so much to choose from. 
  • Given the amount of homeless citizens that use this space, it is really quite clean. They do a nice job of allowing people a place to rest as long as nobody is disruptive. The library keeps everything...  more »

  • This is really an amazing library. They have really made the necessary changes to bring it into the 21st century. They made it more open, they added a wonderful cafe, and seats so people could study, and use the internet and eat.
  • YALL DIDNT HAVE ANY HENTI
  • This is a nice modern library. The use pf natural light is perfect. It is in the coolest part of Santa Monica. The people watching is as good as it gets. There is a small cafe in the outdoor courtyard with tables. The wifi is solid. It is surprisingly quiet.
  • I want to love this library so badly, but several things make it a poor option for studying or working. First, the study room reservations are highly competitive, so if you haven't planned a few days in advance, you must scour the library for open seating, which is often occupied within 5 minutes after the door opens in the morning by people who intend to stay until the library closes. Second, the wifi is often slow, making it difficult to access files with large data or high resolution. Third, the coffee/cafe options are minimal, meaning, even if you do find a seat in the morning, you certainly won't have one when you return from scavenging for something to eat.
  • I am giving this 4 stars but it would have gotten 5 but they have a homeless problem. Its not their fault the cool quiet building serves as a safe place to escape the heat for the homeless that don't have a place to go. So at times the smell can be bad depending where your sitting. The police do come in to make random sweeps and make sure they dont stay to sleep. But theres nothing they really can do
