This is a wonderful prototypical small-town library, with lots of books (unlike some of the branch libraries); sitting areas for reading, studying, and using computers; long racks of books, some audiobooks on CD, and bunches of things I haven't yet discovered. It's also next to the plaza where the Saturday morning Beaverton Farmers Market is held, so there's a two-for-one for you :-)

Love this place! It's by far my favorite Library! Large selection of everything, including DVDs, audio books, juvenile books, etc. What I really love is the architecture-the wood is nice, it's sunny inside- it's a pleasing visual environment and overall it's generally quiet, although not as quiet as I would like at times. The Librarians have been helpful and check you out quickly, and they have several self-check. There are easily accessed bathrooms, too.

Love this place. I went there on a Saturday and was pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was upstairs, very suitable for work and research. Lots of useful info to be had beyond the basic library stuff.

The library is a great place to take the time to read a book and collect oneself without being disturbed.
