Take a look at the underground children's library for making various performances, closely, if you are an event, the event in which a thousand volumes before kindergarten. In the future I will try to actively participate at the event.

  • This library feels cozy and the librarians are always very friendly and ready to help! :) Also, I love that we can check out board games here! Yay!
  • The internet hardly ever works and when it does, it's intermittent. There are usually homeless people around- many of whom are threatening. Once, a homeless man with a mental disorder was staring at me, and when I looked up and made eye contact, he started threatening me with violence. He was shouting at me through the window and urinating on the front balcony. The police finally had to be called. Today, a clearly "disturbed" individual sat behind me and started making random and unusual statements. He was also repeating "get off my computer, get off my computer." Mental health facilities have continuously been getting cuts to their budget which leaves many dangerous people coming face to face with children who have been dropped off by parents believing the Urbana Public Library to be safe. It's not- and children should be closely monitored.
  • Very friendly, with a well-stocked section of art and comics! Highly recommend!
  • When I describe the virtues of the city in which I have lived for 31 years, I emphasize a few very important items that make living in Urbana especially blessed (in no particular order): the nearness of several 24-hour supermarkets, so that no matter where you live, if necessary you can walk to one of them within a half hour (usually much less); Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, one of the premier venues in the country; Peter B's Automotive (having an excellent, impeccably honest mechanic makes living here very easy); the delicious and healthy tap water, coming from the Mahomet Aquifer; the nearness of World Harvest and the Common Ground Co-op, where we can purchase virtually anything we want from all parts of the world as well as healthy, inexpensive organic foods; and the Urbana Free Library. Our library is wonderful. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly; there are resources for more needs than most of us can imagine; and it's physically charming. We rented before we purchased a home back in 1984, and one of the reasons we bought where we did was that the library was within walking distance for our kids. Our children are all grown and live all across the country--but we still value very much our nearness to the Urbana Free Library, whose services we constantly use.
  • My favourite place in in all of Urbana!!
