I love the library here in Lawrence. This is a great place to take your kids, and hang out for a few hours. They have excellent programs and resources, especially for teens: video game consoles, board games, and a dedicated space. There's so many online resources that a library card gives you access to, as well. We've been here a year, and we are still finding new benefits from the library.

Huge selection, movies, games, modern computers, books etc, little coffee place at the door, lovely all around, abundant parking next door easy check in and check out of books, and everything was properly sorted, convinced this place looks as good on a normal day as it did the first day it opened, 5/5 stars all day long + a female worker at the main desk went out of her way to help me and one of my friends locate a resource we were looking for. (Maybe add motorcycle parking please??)

Bad left-wingish, lady librarian named Sandberg works there. She did a special on TV with ultra-bad left-wing writer Howard Zinn. Also, the elevator even got stuck. How this old 1970's run down place got so many great reviews is a mystery. (I meant to put his on the Lawrence, mas LPL forum.
