Love it.
Nov 2020
Always used the local library and decided to go to the main library.
They have so many cool things inside--the Mark Twain Room, ancestery information, bookds, dvds, etc. If you like your local library you will really like the downtown one.

Good collection and public friendly
Jul 2019
It can be termed both an attraction and a treasure house of books. The book lovers' paradise. The collection is a grand one and references aplenty. The library system here is such that books borrowed can be returned in any of the ancillary units elsewhere within Buffalo/Erie county which makes life easier. The availability of a books in large print and stored in dedicated racks make it easier for senior citizens.

Grovesnor Room is a treasure
Aug 2019 • Couples
While vacationing in Buffao, I stopped into the Grovesnor Room to find out what online resources it has available for researching local family history. The librarian who assisted me was very knowledgeable. The on-site and on-line resources available there are quite impressive.

There is a lot to do there. They have various exhibits, such as the Mark Twain room and the rare books collection. They have various programs and a great selection. There is a coffee shop for a quick bite too. A true gem

This is a huge library. Wow!
Jun 2018 • Couples
There were lots of books, movies, music and all was well displayed and easy to find.

There were several exhibitions: An exhibition of World War 2. There were lots of photos, posters and artifacts.

Another exhibition of Mark Twain. He actually went to Buffalo.

Another exhibition was on James Fraser Gluck, a Canadian.

In a room there were checkers and chess. They were huge. A great place for children to play and learn.

This is a must see!

Went with a friend when we had time between a tour and lunch. Mark Twain room and rare books room were very nice. The children’s area looked phenomenal, but we did not have little kids. Will definitely return.

Much more than your average library. Very nice, large facility. Seemingly a lot of activities ongoing in the summer for the community. Stopped in to see World War I display. A good collection and history of local ties to the war. Posters are awesome.
