Limited computer use time to less than 1 hour per card holder. Some people that work there are not happy and are short with customers. But I have seen customers be rude and disrespectful to... More

This new and very modern library has something for everyone. Even though it is known for the traditional literary offerings it also stocks all the recent magazines that contain many new updated events & news.

It's beautiful and a great place to explore, read, be sedentary, or use the computer. The expanded hours were needed and are appreciated. And, it offers other needed services to the community, as well. I recommend that those in Medford who despairingly call it the 'Taj Mahal' should spend more time using it.

What a beautiful library and they recently expanded their hours, floors of books, magazines, periodicals, etc. Wonder place to sit and enjoy the quiet in some lovely rooms.

This modern library has lots of space for reading periodicals, doing work on your computer or browsing the stacks. The childrens' section is excellent. The books of all the county libraries can be ordered on-line and the web site works well.

Library has everything you could ask for. Beautifully designed, two floors. My two beefs here is there is only one hour allowed on the computers, where I am used to two hours in CA, and after one hour parking in the lot, you must pay for parking. If you are disabled and use a walking device, I found it is... More

This library gets a lot of use from residents and students of the local community college. Meeting rooms; computer terminals with free wi-fi; a large periodic reading section; alongside the usual collection of fiction, non-fiction, reference and children's area.

I was pleasantly surprised at the wide selection of young adult literature. Weekend staff in the young adult room was extremely helpful. What a great place to send my kids.
