Broward County Main Library is a beautiful building. I find parking difficult and way too many steps. They have all the new computers and I find what I am looking for after I get there.

This library has lots of books and references. It is clean and well staffed. But the lobby has a lot of wasted space and you have to go upstairs (via escalator or elevator) to get to the library itself. It’s not energy efficient.

The library itself is gorgeous. The kid's area is kind of scarce, but large. My biggest issue is the amount of homeless people outside of the library. There were at least over 20, bags and all. We're here on vacation and this looks terrible for...More
