“All libraries should look and feel like this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

It's an exquisite place. The building itself is gorgeous. We were in the older building and unfortunately didn't have time to do both buildings. We had an amazing conversation with the librarian in the special collections section. Go see it as well as all the magnificent chess sets they have in their collection. Between the buildings is a reading nest. Check it out and experience the calm of sitting there and being absorbed in your surroundings and a favorite book. If all libraries were like this, they would all be packed!

“Reading - Seeing - Research - Whatever Your Needs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

First you have a world class location right downtown with state of the art technology. Have a relaxing time reading or use technology to find old newspapers of events in Cleveland - everything from Elliott Ness to NASA Space - it's all here in Cleveland.

“Welcome refuge from hot summer day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is a great free attraction within the city. Stopped in to take advantage of the air conditioning. Pleasantly surprised with the wonderful architecture. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful architecture and full collection of popular books”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Love this library! I love the ebook option online since I'm not very good about returning library books. They have a full catalog of popular books and movies and not just research books.

“Superman”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We went to the library to check out the just opened Superman exhibit. Worth a visit if you are at all interested in how Superman came about.
