  • I wandered into the Central Library after a friend told me about the gift store! I spent over an hour trying to decide what to buy. There are funny cards , paper fans, pencils, erasers, books, socks.....  more »

  • Amazing Library! I live almost two hours away on a regular day but I always make sure to have time to come here. Has beautiful views and there's parking available on the left side of the main entrance. It's a large lot and no matter how busy they always have parking. The staff are very nice and so are the guards. I did however get profiled by one guard because I had my skateboard with me. But after understanding how old I was and that I my intention was not to skate in the library he was very nice and right this day he says hello whenever he's on shift! Even when the library is busy the music section has some vacant areas to sit to study or just read a book. Yes, there is a homeless issue. My suggestion for that is to be nice to them and they'll be nice to you or avoid them as much as you can if your not a huge fan of them. Please, remember they are human too and you don't know why their story! They are rarely ever in the library and when they are, trust me they are not in there to bother you. Super nice people and amazing Library!!
