The Toledo libraries are a great place to take the family! We go at least once a week if not more often. The kids always look forward to going to the library. They have a great selection of books, magazines, DVD's, audio books and a lot more.

The older part of the Main library downtown is in art-deco style, although it was expended several years ago, and offers an outstanding collection of books. The library was able to locate in its collection some German books I've sought. Many of the seldom requested books are keep elsewhere.

Spacious gorgeous building with multiple sections for various ages. I did not venture to all these resources, but they did seem vast.

The downtown library is by far extravagant. The roof top area offers wonderful views and peace from the busy life below.

I have found very helpful staff who like what they do, are proud of their holdings and pleased to be asked to help find something. They have a beautiful space within the original building and a most interesting addition with a garden roof.

Our public library is a wonderful place to visit. I can't say enough good things about it. It is excellent for children, with the special learning children's sections. But it is actually great for everyone, with computer access, movies and music to borrow, and every kind of books you could imagine. Just a great place to go and relax too!!

I absolutely LOVE the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library system!! Toledo is so fortunate to have it and it's so awesome!! I frequent the libraries at least twice in any given week and I've been there as a leader/advocate, volunteer, class/workshop instructor and as a patron for meetings, classes, receptions, author talks, exhibits, auditions and so much more!!

Went in as part of a road trip. I ran through taking pictures. Different areas have different styles that flow together well.

The library not only has a huge collection of books and media but the children's area is a wonderful place to spend time with a young child. There is an aquarium, car, interactive toys- just a wonderful resource.
