This is not only a historic building but also carries a wide array of books. You will not be disappointed in this library.

Love the library. Has books, cds, computers, even a small gift shop. Anything you could use. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Clean and has area for children. Different classes are available, for instance senior classes on the web or things for the children.

This library is the best one I've ever been to & it's right here in our town. It's a huge, gorgeous building with lots of uniqueness & tons of charm. If you love older building & can appreciate truly beautiful architecture, than this is the library for you. They keep it very nice, clean & it has lots of updates.... More

Me included, but I have visited just for the experience.. If your a book worm, or architect lover... Enjoy .. It will be a sad day when toledos libraries die a slow and painful death.

This library system keeps getting better. The main building is a classic and the branches have been updated and provide the same, great service. It's so easy to go online and have materials delivered to your local facility. They are also way out in front in providing books and music for downloading. We can be anywhere in the world and,...

It's actually a huge and beautiful building, full of books. A lot nicer than many libraries. The negatives - a LOT of homeless people inside and other people who were not there for books or library services. It didn't feel super safe. I parked in the underground parking garage which is quite cheap but a car boxed me in and... More

Toledo has a fantastic library system that is county wide. Each individual library has its own special charm but all continually strive to improve and update the quality of offerings. The Main Branch downtown Toledo is a showpiece with many vintage and original artistic touches. Staff are ALL professional and knowledgeable and eager to assist, no matter which branch library...

Was here for a conference for work. The library was pretty and clean. The various meeting rooms were nice too. I'm not used to being in a "city" library, and I don't know if this is a normal thing, but the number of scruffy-looking men sitting without books was a bit disconcerting (I counted 9). The staff that I came... More

The library is a focal point of downtown, and the combination of the 1920s building and its excellent murals with the more recent addition is very attractive. I asked to use a computer, since I don't like to do credit card transactions over poorly protected wifi networks at hotels. The staff behind the desk didn't know how to do that,... More

More than a fabulous Art Deco style piece of downtown Toledo, the library is an active part of the Toledo educational, cultural, and community life. With a large auditorium, lunch counter, underground public parking, an extensive collection of historically significant history of the area, archival rooms, and both local and international art displays, computer research areas, and public lectures, one...
