About
Since its opening in 1912, the Central Library, a “center of intellectual life,” has given entrance to the State Street corridor. Solidly built of white Vermont marble with immense rooms and corridors, this library has a history of serving working people, at one time open 365 days per year! More than a collection of books and materials, it is an impressive yet inviting community-gathering space. T

Nothing special

It's just a library with nothing really to inspire you other than a nice facade.

It's also in a part of town which is quite unsavoury.

LOTS of books for the booklover

There are plenty of books, videos, and other materials to borrow. The children's room has activities and games for all ages.
There are computers for students to use and n the children's room they can play games too. This is a beautiful building with quiet areas for enjoying a good book or studying. The librarians are very helpful too.

My sweetie was a docent here for awhile. We went on trips to Egypt, Greece, and Turkey led by Chuck and Irene and had an absolute blast....Lots of good things to see for adults and children.

Go for the books, stay for the Quadrangle
Jan 2016 • Family
This is a beautiful library and a true treasure. It has been updated though the many years I have gone here and has adapted to the times. The only issue is the parking. The closest lot is on the other side of the Quad and is quite a hike for the disabled. Also, the museums that accompany the library are always worth a visit.
