“Wonderful public facility”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Excellent staff at all three locations. Very good facilities, with quiet places for reading. Only complaint is the difficulty of parking (lot is aways full) at the Main Branch of the library in the summer. If your travels take you to the southside of the city, I recommend the Southside (off of Jaguar Rd) and LaFarge branches, for ease of access and parking. The Southside is very new; is a beautiful and spacious facility; and has a Friends of the Library shop with great finds in books and CDs.

“free wifi”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

If you need to get online and don't have a computer or a hook up, you can stop in at the Library and get signed on. there are a limited number of computers available, so there may be a wait if that's what you need. Wifi was strong, easy to connect to and no dropped connections.
Since there were two of us, it was convenient as well, since one of us could grab a book off the shelves and read while the other was on line.
Relatively quiet too given how many folks were there on a cold day.
