  • I live here, so I go to this library a lot. It's two stories with an elevator and the choice of the beautiful staircase. The children's library is adorable! They even have a teen center inside of it. ...  more »

  • The most uncooperative personnel, inconvenient library facility and non user friendly library I've ever had the displeasure of trying to use. Went into the library as a guest to make a copy of an email. Got a guest pass to access a computer, printed the email, went to retrieve the copy and only had a $20 bill. I could've used the change maker but would have received $19.85 in coins. I was instructed to go down the stairs to the circulation desk and get change. I did that and was told they had no change, and that I could go across the street to the bank to get change. That was a silly suggestion to my mind. Went back up stairs to have the desk person cancel the copy order. No one was helpful.
  • Beautiful place. Love the fish tank by the children's area.
  • The amazing layout and the available resources are unlimited .....the employees are helpful, insightful and awesome....the most beautiful Library I have had the pleasure of discovering and it was quite by accident when my car broke down on I75....I am seriously considering moving from Brooksville to Sarasota simply because of this Library!!! A must see to all tourists and locals alike!!! Reading is a fundamental of life that can be enjoyed....on the go, at home....or a great sleepy time story for your young children....children are our future....read to them....they will appreciate your efforts!!! and your Love...
  • Knowledgeable helpful staff especially in computer department
  • Open floor plan. Wifi. Friendly service. But limited operating hours.
