  • If you had to say the Top 10 treasured places in Fort Wayne, this would have to be one of them. Maybe number 1. The library has an art gallery, a movie theater, food as Dunkin donuts, a parking garage, and BOOKS; oh did I mention one of the best genealogy sections in the nation. There are whole towns in Indiana that have less interesting things than this single block in the summit city. My sister needed a movie and apparently this library has it. The library is continuing force of Knowledge and stimulation in one place. Everyone should go to this place
  • Super friendly staff, large selection of books, great children's area and lots of scheduled activities
