The public restroom smells like a sewer. It's really unfortunate because I can bet you money that the Staff bathroom is pretty much clean. I came to this Library when it JUST opened, around 10 am and used the restroom. Smells horrible, tissue all over the floor and dirty seat. There is no excuse that the restroom was in bad shape RIGHT when it opened.

This library is in a convenient location but is a bit gloomy. Prepare to deal with people with odor as many use the orange seats for naps. It also can get quite noisy from the kids playing.

I am sorry, is this a place where people can come study and work? It seems that this is a place where homeless people can come and sleep! A lot of homeless people and they smell!

One story library. Free wifi. Many power outlets. Lots of hand sanitizer available. One coed bathroom. No soap. Need to push down on sink continuously for water. Good place to wait if need to wait for Apple Store. Pretty crowded on a Thursday at 3pm
