Moved away from downtown, but still the branch libraries can usually quickly reserve anything you need. Great selections of books, music, videos and more. And now audio books, etc available online. Always there for me since I was barely old enough to read. Thank you...More

As other reviews say, this library doesn't only have an extensive collection. It's full of wonderful architecture and art. The entrance lobby is lined with spectacular glass murals (glass, of course, because this is Toledo); the glass is actually called Vitrolite, and display cases in...More

All branches of the TLCPL are worth visiting, and the main branch downtown offers a plethora of things to see and do. Kids activities, cooking classes, geneology research, local maps and history, and, oh, yeah, crack open a good book.

This place is huge. Filled with books and history. Our kids prefer this library over all of the others even the brand new ones. They get so excited when we go to this one. It is a magical place to them.
