I have a great time at Charles Tisdale library. It's a great experience for the family, showing weekly movies on Saturdays, similar to what the Eudora Welty library does. The only peeve is that when the timed sessions run out the first time, it takes a full minute to shut down and restart the computers. They should really look forward to fixing that situation. And like the first review said, the staff need to be a little bit more quieter.

A library is suppose to be a quiet place where people should be able to visit to complete assignments, study, or just quiet time. I am a student preparing for an exam, the stafff of the library has loud voices that were very distracting. I could not finish my studying due the loud noise volumes from a select few of co-workers.
