This is a very beautiful library in the middle of Central Park, surrounded by greens and water. It is a two story building with a snail staircase in the middle that separates the theater and meeting rooms from the library itself.

This 3 story library set on the edge of a park and near an amphitheater in the middle of Huntington Beach. There are all sorts of activities, art shows and other cultural events. Free to all residents, but worth touring if you are not.
