“Beautiful new building, good paring rates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

This facility is beautiful with an amazing children's section and outdoor patio. I will give you a heads up that some parents will leave their children at the computer stations unattended for hours...we were there for about two hours and there was a group of 4 boys playing online games with each other and being VERY loud. This would never fly in our library, but I guess it does here. On the flip side, my four year old made a new friend while playing on the patio area outside. The staff was lovely and the facility was beautiful. If you're traveling with kids, they offer a puppet theater time and they have arts and crafts as well, but it appeared to be during assigned times. Check it out. Parking was less than $10 here and within walking from downtown.

“Beautiful library”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I love going to the library on my lunch break and sitting in the courtyard. A little oasis in downtown Nashville. Great art exhibits and historical artifacts. Great selection of movies books on tapes and books. My only complaints would be the homeless using restroom to bathe and the library as a whole is pretty loud. Cell phone use seems to be accepted practice in the reading rooms. Aside from these minor negatives it is worth a visit.

“This is a library”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Now this is what you call a library, such a wide selection of books. This place brings me back memories back when a I was a ye lad. This has to be the best library I have ever gone to.

I like the fact that they have a lot of programs for the kids and also adults. They also provide free tutoring if needed for certain ages.
