I cannot believe how much our libraries offer. They are not just a building full of books. They are very high-tech and also offer many classes.

This is one of the most comprehensive libraries I've been to. There selection is huge and they cover just about any topic. They have audio, video, conferences, events. If you need time for yourself away from noise and busy life, this is a great option.

Love going to the library to read! Always activities for adults and children especially during the summer! Love the fact that it's across from my job and lunch time is a relaxing moment with the fountain outside.

Decent library with pleasant associates. Located in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Sad to have the multitude of homeless congregating on the property.

I like visiting libraries and this one has a good amount of natural light. The World War II exhibit was good while the moon rock was really disappointing to a fellow visitor who needed help finding it.

We loved this place so much that my husband and I had our formal wedding reception in the lobby. Actually it was planned for outdoors on New Year's Eve in 1992 but a storm drove us inside. The acoustics were fantastic for our live band and our friends thought we were quite clever. It has a book selection that is... More

The main library has several floors with all types of media. Lots of room to read, even for the large community of homeless in the area.
