We only stopped here for a short while to have a look around. The architecture is quite stunning if you go to see that and nothing else. There were lots of collections, lots of books and even DVD's etc. to read/rent, and there appeared to be good space for reading. We went to see the Grand Reading Room but unfortunately it was closed; we could still look in but just not enter. The janitor approached us and he was very nice, very funny and gave us a little background on the Grand Reading Room. The library is very well maintained, credit to him also I guess. I would pop in if passing by as it was quite awesome to see.

The library is open to all and is free. There are exhibits worth viewing and the architecture makes a visit worthwhile

I visit public libraries where ever I travel. This space was beautiful yet functional. I was particularly impressed with the archival section featuring Nashville public records dating back to the 1800s.

I was surprised how large this library is! So large! Also loved the courtyard, so nice. The children’s section was awesome as well. Very impressive.

The first floor is your normal library but if you wander upstairs, you see the history of Nashville including murals, and exhibits. The children's section has a puppet stage and all sorts of fun stuff to keep them entertained. Good use of public funds.
