Beautiful library in the heart of Brookline. It's got a classic feel and tons of books, videos and other material. Hunneman Hall is a beautiful hall for piano recitals.

All in all, this library is wonderful. While it is not the biggest library in the city, it has a small feel that keeps it a cozy, intimate place, while still being accessible. It's a wonderful place to while away a Sunday afternoon.
