Simply one of the best libraries I've visited. Excellent layout and facilities - helpful staff and nice exhibitions. Also features a great used-book store.

“free computer access”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The computer access is free, but non-residents can't use them unless accompanied by a resident with a library card. The lenghth of time for use is very short.

“Esoteric Books”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

I'm not a member yet but my husband likes that he can order technical and other esoteric books from the main library or any branch and they'll to an inter-library loan. At our old library I'd get cookbooks because mine were in storage over three years. Next time I'll look into that even though I unpacked mine just a few weeks ago. Still haven't been to the main library, which I'd like to see for its architecture, but have been to branches.
