Fabulous diamond in the ruff

The downtown library is by far extravagant. The roof top area offers wonderful views and peace from the busy life below.

Spacious gorgeous building with multiple sections for various ages. I did not venture to all these resources, but they did seem vast.

I have found very helpful staff who like what they do, are proud of their holdings and pleased to be asked to help find something. They have a beautiful space within the original building and a most interesting addition with a garden roof.

Our public library is a wonderful place to visit. I can't say enough good things about it. It is excellent for children, with the special learning children's sections. But it is actually great for everyone, with computer access, movies and music to borrow, and every kind of books you could imagine. Just a great place to go and relax too!!

I absolutely LOVE the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library system!! Toledo is so fortunate to have it and it's so awesome!! I frequent the libraries at least twice in any given week and I've been there as a leader/advocate, volunteer, class/workshop instructor and as a patron for meetings, classes, receptions, author talks, exhibits, auditions and so much more!!

Went in as part of a road trip. I ran through taking pictures. Different areas have different styles that flow together well.

The library not only has a huge collection of books and media but the children's area is a wonderful place to spend time with a young child. There is an aquarium, car, interactive toys- just a wonderful resource.

Even in this electronic age when we can just get ebooks, we still love to go to the libraries a couple times a month. I've stopped at libraries in other towns just to compare and we are very lucky here in lucas county!

This is a great library with beautiful Bakelite murals all over the building and Art Deco touches all over. The new addition has great outdoor spaces to view Downtown Toledo from above.
