It's a beautiful building, and a great library, but we actually returned our books at another location to avoid coming back here. I know the city is trying to address this issue, but there really are a load of rough characters all around the building....More

It is a beautiful building and does not look like your "typical" library. The best part though is that it is full of books and so much more. Staff are very helpful and the space works well for just hanging out and enjoying the vibe!

I moved away from this library so I don't frequent this branch anymore. Always found the staff friendly and knowledgeable. There are plenty of available computers and not once did I experience any problems with computers, people, or any issues.
