  • The library has gorgeous windows, doors & ceilings. It’s been well preserved. It’s truly lovely. Nice to just stroll around & take a look.  more »
  • The library has some really nice stained glass windows as well as some very pretty murals. The marble staircase is nice.  more »

  • I have been a library member as of age 10. Love the place and a wealth of knowledge for the young and old. I agree about the parking, but i use the library time as slow down time. So I take the bus, ride my bike and or park free away from there and take a walk there is a lot to see in the area of Wayne State University. The People there have always treated me with respect. Please visit!
  • When attempting to obtain a library card for my daughter, I experienced terrible customer service! The older heavyset woman allowed my Chile’s & into stand in front of her without her saying a word. She looked up at us & continued to do what she was doing. We then got in the other line and he then said something. But still no smile, conversation. Just rude!
