As a librarian from another state, I love visiting libraries when I travel. Boulder Library was exceptional - beautiful, modern and very useful. I used one of the sewing machines in the BLDG61 Makerspace and the staff there was extremely helpful and friendly.

We stopped at this library to do some genealogy research. Call ahead and was told what we needed was there. When we got there, they didn't have it. We drove 1-1/2 hours to get here and didn't get what we wanted.

The central library is located downtown near the Municipal Building. Because there are a lot of trees, green grass, and a creek that runs through it, the library has become a venue where transients hang out during the day, especially in inclement weather. The grounds...More
