“Main St. Louis Library”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

The library has been closed since around 2010 for major renovations. It had beutifull murals, brass railings. The interior had unique architecture "gingerbread" on the ceilings. The book stacks were 4 floors tall! YES,4 floors tall, the stacks went between glass tiled floors

“Waiting for Reopening”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Our library has been closed for remodeling for more than a year. I'm expecting great things when it reopens...it was wonderful before.

“Under Renovation”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

This is being renovated into a modern library, rather than one with the old-fashioned system of sitting around waiting for your book to come from the stacks, in many cases. The architecture is interesting, and they do have lively minds.
