also, several dozen public computers in the basement. they open at 10am, so no earlybirds. i think that they still have a newspaper reading room with papers from all over the world

“All libraries should look and feel like this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

It's an exquisite place. The building itself is gorgeous. We were in the older building and unfortunately didn't have time to do both buildings. We had an amazing conversation with the librarian in the special collections section. Go see it as well as all the magnificent chess sets they have in their collection. Between the buildings is a reading nest. Check it out and experience the calm of sitting there and being absorbed in your surroundings and a favorite book. If all libraries were like this, they would all be packed!

“Reading - Seeing - Research - Whatever Your Needs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

First you have a world class location right downtown with state of the art technology. Have a relaxing time reading or use technology to find old newspapers of events in Cleveland - everything from Elliott Ness to NASA Space - it's all here in Cleveland.

“Welcome refuge from hot summer day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is a great free attraction within the city. Stopped in to take advantage of the air conditioning. Pleasantly surprised with the wonderful architecture. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful architecture and full collection of popular books”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Love this library! I love the ebook option online since I'm not very good about returning library books. They have a full catalog of popular books and movies and not just research books.
