A High-Functioning, wonderfully engaging Library
Feb 2020
I moved here from a series of places that had sub-par libraries (after living 20+ years in Seattle, with a super system.) I nearly cried with happiness when I visited the library here. It is big, welcoming, with a good selection of books, periodicals, newspapers, etc, and a system of member libraries to supplement what is here. I have to give a shout out for the people working at the library, as well - they are unfailingly helpful, polite, and friendly. Such a deep pleasure to have this asset to the community!

Nice Comprehensive Library
Feb 2019 • Solo
Overall a nice library that caters to all ages. many programs going on. You can stay here all day and read if you want. I see some seniors that use it for a napping place during the summer on a hot day. You can check out videos and CDs. You have to have a membership card if you are from the area. Even if you are from out of town you can hang out and enjoy the vast amounts of media. A cheap place to spend the day.

Gem in downtown eau claire

I would give ten stars if I could. There are worlds and worlds to be discovered here, and we are grateful for the helpful staff, the updated displays and rotating selection of toys, the programs for kids and families, and the great choices for "community reads". The library has something for everyone and is a central hub of this community. As my preschooler dresses up for pretend play with instant-friends in the kid's area, I get to play along, visit with other parents, browse interesting new fiction. For now my big boys love the good collection of graphic novels, and yes, playing games on ipads in the kids section. And of course, I always find a great book- fiction, house designing, cooking, travel, history, biography... the library is my favorite gateway!

upstairs is MUCH quieter
Jul 2018 • Business
Had to print some documents, and staff were very helpful, with no problems that I'm an out of stater.

Otherwise, the usual problems with Wisconsin libraries, as there's no designated quiet area, however the 2nd floor is MUCH quieter.

Something for everyone
Jun 2018 • Family
This library is really keeping up with the times. Of course they have books and magazines but they also have computers and a lot of new technology. They have programs to bring people in and meeting rooms for groups. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful.

Could make many improvements
May 2018 • Couples
Seeing that the L.E. Phillips library is the ONLY library for a city of 69,000 people it could have better hours. The library only opens at 10am on weekdays and closes early.

What a local gem!

Such a great family friendly place to go and explore with kids or by yourself. Everything from books, music, dvds, and the local art scene.

Great selection and friendly staff
Nov 2016 • Family
I love this library! They have a great selection and also have free audiobooks online. Their kids section is full of fun things for children and they always have reading programs throughout the year. Including a program where you can read away your debt.

Food preservation
Aug 2017
We were able to check out canning equipment for 4 weeks. What a great benefit. The kit came with a pressure canner, equipment kit, and books. We were able to put up plum jelly, apple pie filling, apple sauce, and tomato sauce.

Nice selection
Jun 2017
This is the go-to public library in the area if you are looking for materials. They have a nice collection, plenty of computers, and areas to sit and read. The children's area is set off to the side on the main level helping to keep noise levels low.
