This library as a great selection of everything. But, in a special little area tot he side is the Friends of the Library store kinda. It has people donated items for real good prices. Old magazines you been looking all over for, books you can't find, video games that are used an might be a few game systems back but... More

I like how large this library is because my little ones can forget to whisper and I haven't ruined the entire library's experience. The kids' section is so big too, and there are lots of movies on top of the book selection. Kids can play on computers too. You can hold books online and get an email when they are... More

Good selection of anything you'd expect from a typical library. Staff is (usually) friendly. Conveniently, they give you the option to return items to any affiliated library.

A nice library, but if you are not a resident of Alabama, then you must pay to use this library. It doesn't matter is you are an Alabama taxpayer and they take 5% of your salary already in taxes, you do not qualify for a library card. As a large portion, perhaps over 30% of Lincoln County residents commute, work,... More

Our library satisfies most requirements. We have a children's area, computers available for use on every floor, snack lounge, conference rooms, etc. But one area we are lacking is in foreign language learning books. I was looking for some Korean language books and the only ones I saw were from the 1920s, 1940s, and 1950s. And there were only 5... More

The staff, the selection of books and audio-visual material, the computer facilities, and the location are excellent. The genealogical collection on the third floor is superb. Everyone should be aware that the full capability of Ancestry.com is available to library card holders.

I love how they have the children's books down low and in bins where the kids can look through them versus on shelves. We've since moved and I've not seen this arrangement anywhere else. It's so nice. They have a vast array of materials and programs for kids and we immensely enjoyed spending time there.

To the traveler, if you need free wifi, a clean bathroom, a quiet spot to read, a comfortable chair to nap in, shelter from a storm in a controlled climate, a computer to borrow, or any other thing that modern libraries typically offer then you should stop in during your visit to Huntsville. If not, skip this attraction. I don't... More
