“Great Architecture”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Library Square is a neat little place to grab a coffee for a break from the library. The library itself is well worth a visit and handy to the downtown area for the washrooms!

“The Roman Coliseum for lovers of literature.”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

The VPL just works well on all levels, and there are literally many levels to the building. It's just a class act with helpful well-informed librarians.

“Unusual architectural design in a big beautiful city!”
Reviewed 25 November 2012

Well pack a library of an old age design with who else but McDonald's right next door...great library, but the surrounding businesses are not so impressive...but then again, the library itself is if you like this type of architecture.
