This is a library repurposed as a day care facility. Babies and kids crying all the time. If you are coming here to study or read, better bring construction type of noise blocking headphones. Otherwise it's alright.

Excellent atheneum where one can find any number of academic resources and cultural media from books to videos to the world wide web. I especially have an affinity toward this branch because this is the one library where the librarian said my friends and I can actually speak up and have a meeting in the open space, which is virtually unheard of in my experience! Plus there are a litany of shops and eateries nearby whenever a knowledge-explorer has the munchies or needs a good spot for a date.

Excellent neighborhood library! Nice place to read or pick up a book to read at home, or to research a topic. I was surprised, though, to find that some people seem to be using it for "non-library" or "non-community" purposes, such as a free or inexpensive place to conduct their work versus paying for a telecommuting or temporary office space. Perhaps information on where people who need places to conduct work can find these would be useful? Thanks so much for an excellent job!
