I love this library. It has a grand exterior and entrance. It's the sort of place that makes you want to read and learn. It's the largest library I'm aware of in Brookline and thus obviously has a huge selection of books.

Wonderful study/work place. You will find a calm, motivating environment, nice staff, free parking and specious old stile interior in the beautiful library of the beautiful city of Brookline. Hooked!

Wonderful building, really quiet, lots of tables with electricity, perfect place to concentrate. The wireless internet could be faster but that's OK. Boston Central Library is flooded with tourists, this one has only readers and students.
