service par excellence, very knowledgeable and went out of their way to be helpful. The center was very crowded when we entered, but they continued to open lanes to process all of us tourists; I heard several of the folks offer to give up their lunch hour to help. Great folks

The Centre is located downtown in a unique building. I was assisted immediately even though there were many other visitors being tended to. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. We really enjoyed the downtown area of Banff.

It was far to busy and there wasn't a lot of books to look at or take with you. It was difficult to find what you wanted and like I said way to many people in there at one time.
