The VPL just works well on all levels, and there are literally many levels to the building. It's just a class act with helpful well-informed librarians.

Well pack a library of an old age design with who else but McDonald's right next door...great library, but the surrounding businesses are not so impressive...but then again, the library itself is if you like this type of architecture.

So nice to find a place to rest on a Fall afternoon. I find the Square is a little haven of green and peace in the midst of a rushing jungle of traffic, bikes and general noise!
