“A five star location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Went here recently on an Art and Architecture tour and learned many things about this Cleveland landmark which I did not know. I have not spent much time in this library in Downtown Cleveland since I live in the suburbs and do not work downtown anymore. I had forgotten how great are the building and contents. And now there is also the new building next door, and the garden in between. Fabulous!

“Fabulous, friendly and full of character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The building is full of history with a modern twist. As a visitor, you can get a 1 hour free internet pass with ID to access one of the many PC's which is very helpful. Or you can take your tablet or device and just log onto the public net for free. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The building beautifully restored and spacious. A treat not to miss.

“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.
