I always have a great experience when I visit the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. First, the building is beautiful and is located in a great spot near Prospect Park. The library's online system always has worked well for me. I reserve a book online and pick it up at the designated branch. It is also great for renewing books. The actual library is easy to navigate, has all the books you could ever want, and never has long checkout lines. People are always utilizing the cafe area in the main lobby.

State of the Art. Realm of relaxing, conversing, & networking. Your able to find a quiet space or simply get involved. Great inspiration tool for studying and observing. Nice pleasant area. Walking distance to Brooklyn Museum.

I really don't know why this would get anything less than 5 stars. It's cool on a hot day, warm on a cold day, the staff is always nice, and they showcase art from both local artists and schools. Please support your local library - donate time, books, money to keep this going for everyone.

Loved the atmosphere! Lots of selections, friendly staff. Checked out two audiobooks which were scratched and therefore skipped excessively. The library should update and replace those. Forgot how annoying owning cds are. Then I checked out a great book for which I couldn't put down. Even fell asleep with it in ny bed...and woke up to a bedbug bitting me 11 times! Turned me off from my nostalgic feeling of checking out library books. Mentally scarred.

They call this the Grand Army Plaza because it is GRAND! Large and spacious rows of wonderful smelling books. Little areas to sit and read, enjoy this place. It's been a treasure for students with books on all areas, medical, children's section, and art. It houses millions of books and parties. The art work alone is a reason to visit. Carvings, paintings and more line the walls here. It's not hard to get lost in this lovely place and take a trip to another world. Plenty of street parking.

This is the biggest library in Brooklyn. Many books and videos to rent. They also have many free classes for anyone to attend, including computer classes and language practice. They have free family performances and a cafe. A great way to meet new people and spend a day learning new things locally.

I love the library really I do. I would live there if possible. :-) But like someone stated before me some of the people who work at some of the branches--I won't say which ones --are very rude. I have often had arguments with employees over the fact that they gave me a damaged book which they demanded that I pay for it when I was given the book that had missing pages. Some of them make you feel as though your bothering them by asking a few questions. Other than that the libraries are great. The selection of books online and in the library itself are amazing. The centeral library is one of my favorite branches. You should visit it!
