  • I love this library! There are so many things to see and do inside the central library that it seems like it might be confusing but I have never had an issue finding a movie or book. The online system is extremely user friendly and allows me to put in requests to hold items, renew items, and reminds me when a hold item is now available. The elegance of the central library is so inspiring and I always find something interesting to take home with me.
  • I have you used this library for a number of different services...books, books on CD, downloading books, quiet time work and even used conference rooms for business. Every time it was a joy! This is a beautiful building and you feel the history of the Financial District when you spend time here. I was even more excited when I found out my Great Grandfather worked either in this building or across the street. You will see many people taking photos of the parking garage across the street. The parking garage is adorned with what looks like massive books. Definitely worth experiencing yourself.
