The children's library here is wonderful! I drive from the Beaches just to bring my grandchildren to the downtown library, so they can experience its grandiosity, artwork and history. I have NEVER had any experience in the children's library as written by Webb Wesconnett. Maybe he just doesn't like certain people.

The library itself is a very nicely laid out facility and provides ample local service. However there are serious draw backs to this particular branch. The children are ill mannered and foul mouthed. Often parents do not remove the children that are acting up. Disturbances are frequent and regular part of the routine. Often security is tasked with the function of requesting patrons to leave. Apparently this is a sign of the neighborhood it is located in.
