An extensive collection with availability from one branch to another. They will order it to your branch for convenient pickup. Great discussion groups. Always something going on so check the events calendar. Easy check out and on-line renewal.

It's a beautiful library, amazing architecture and a mammoth collection. I recommend visiting it while in Cleveland. Go get lost in an isle of books.

Well maintained and striking library with an impressive architecture. Gives a feeling of an old palace with impressive halls and huge staircases. Seemed to have a great collection of books as well.

okay we had time to kill between the wedding ceremony and the reception so my kids, ages 11 & 13 wanted to visit the library. Very large; great architecture and terrific view of Lake Erie from the children's section! was a fun detour for an hour or so.

WOw, this place is huge!

I wasn't looking for anything in particular so I cant' speak of their selection but the variety is overwhelming. Two city blocks of everything one could possibly need.

The architecture on the original building was very nice to look at from my 8th floor hotel window but was more impressive in person..quite a contract to the modern piece of building next door to it. The park in between was nice secluded piece of nature too (although the don't feed any bird anywhere anytime signs were annoying)

All in all a good little hide out when you're stuck in Cleveland with nothing to do .
