Went there looking for local genealogical history info and found an abundance of material far more reaching. Far too much material for the little time I allotted for this stop on my trip. Very helpful staff. What a great job of creating a collection of beautiful research material. I will be back.

I have been a frequent visitor of the library and the staff have always been friendly and helpful. The Huntsville Heritage / History Room is impressive and the staff are knowledgeable.

We always visit this library when we head to Huntsville. Love the bookstore. And on this visit, there are three baby red-tailed hawks in a nest outside a window on the third floor.

The library has an educational program called LearningQuest. The cost is $10 per year and $25 for a semester and you can take as many classes for that $25 as you want. The instructors are all excellent, many retired members from the community and their subjects are varied. Can't beat the value. Only problem is the lack of parking at... More

I've used our local library for around 25 years. If they don't have a book you can request they purchase it. They have DVDs for check out as well. Before you spend money on a book see if they have it! They also have some things online now. It's a place worth checking out! Pun intended:)

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.
