“Beautiful library”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I took my grandkids here while they were in town visiting. Great children's programs! Parking is free for the first 2 hours if you validate inside. Just be sure you are out BEFORE the time is up. There is no grace. We left the garage 2 minutes early (by THEIR clock) and were still charged. Can't really blame the library for that though. Also, there is a beautiful courtyard in the center of the library with free wifi.

“Great Library”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

The library is a beautiful architectural site. It hosts free book signings/speeches, puppet shows for kids, and so on. I've attended a few book signing and it's really cool the library offers it from time to time. I also check out my library books, DVD's and CD's from here as well. It's only a few blocks from my work and if you're a Davidson County resident, a library card is free.

“Great little gem of a library”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I love visiting libraries - and this one was outstanding. The outside courtyard reminded me of the Isabella Gardner museum in Boston.
