This place is huge! Architecturally it's very impressive. It's clean, quiet (of course) with plenty of work space on each floor. It's a really neat place to go and walk around, explore what's there. The amount of info available is pretty amazing, when you really look around.
Wonderful building to visit during the day and the night view is gorgeous. I recommended the following: (1) explore every floor by taking the escalator and stairs (2) try the free self-guided cell phone tour of the Central Library; asked the front desk for instructions. (3) visit shop from the 5th Ave entrance.
