This library is worth a visit just for the building. Check out the woodwork and the huge paintings on the Mezzanine. It is a well stocked library.

The furnishings are a bit well... More

Gorgeous on the outside, so run down on the inside....rugs are ripped, no a/c, childrens room is not inviting, staff are not friendly....we live in lowell and choose to frequent the Billerica and Tewksbury libraries....cleaner and friendlier.

Don't waste your time going to this library, the librarians are always in a horrible mood. I go there to bring my children to the children's room and there is just one old lady that is very nice, she saves the day because the rest of them are to the point to be rude. The children's section is dark because... More
