Nothing says beautiful city more than a beautiful library. This is one of the best libraries in all of America. The history is on proud display. From its art deco architecture and its awesome collection of books and media, this place is worth a visit. Even if you dont think you need to visit a library, visit this one just for its aesthetics sake. Warm and knowledgeable staff on hand to help you with all your needs.
The building is the first feature you will notice. Amazing architecture and moldings. The vintage marble staircases mixed with modern updates make this a beauty to behold. Multiple levels offer a plethora of resources available to residents with a free membership card. Also check out the free classes, digital content, databases, job training, etc. All free online with your card. Comfortable place to hang out and read or study. Parking in the library lot is free for one hour, just make sure you validate using the machine near the front doors.
