Great library with friendly staff and lots of resources. However, outside of certain designated rooms or sections, this is not a "quiet" library in the traditional sense. Lots folks carrying on conversations and discussions. Not too bothersome but if you are looking for a quiet place to study or read, I would suggest finding a room or section away from the main area or visiting a different branch.
