Foursquare Tips

  • Make use of their garden area for a great, under-appreciated, outside study area. You can access it by the audiobook section or the back of the children's section.
  • They often have wonderful exhibits in the basement.
  • Borrow some art, then when you get tired of looking at it, return it!
  • Shhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
  • Super cheap coffee on the second floor that's actually not that bad. Also an awesome study spot if you live on this side of town like myself
  • The AADL garden is great for reading outside on a nice day
  • Memories with my dad come back
  • A great selection of CDs, find some new music!
  • Great place
  • The library is modernizing in many interesting ways.
  • Rumors of buried treasure in the basement
  • I like that they're piloting the ability to check out non-traditional library offerings like telescopes and power tools.
  • Rent dexter:)
  • Read a book.
  • Meeting up with friends
  • studying.....
  • Seasons 1, 2, 3 and 4 of Dexter.
  • The dvds are free to rent, so please don't complain if they skip.
