Very small library- good sized children's book section. Cramped loud childrens reading nook. Always smells weird.
Ok if u live in VAHI and need to go to library Buckhead branch is place to go. Clean safe and part of steers of Buckhead area. Sorry Ponce is too sketchy.
Glad to have a location relatively close by even if it isn't as grand as other locations. I'd even say that having an old school library that does its job is a nice contrast for kids used to 24/7 high tech and vaulted architecture. This branch has a nicely stocked children's section but not as extensive as other locations. I appreciate that kids seem more behaved here than say, a retail bookstore, where kids commonly destroy unpaid books. Still, if I really need a book, I order it online before going and when I get the email, I pick up at my convenience: http://www.afpls.org/. My City of Atlanta taxes ($321 yearly) are paying for the library, so I use it more than a big box bookstore. By the way, your child can apply for his own library card!
The staff here is awesome and although this branch is small, there's a great selection of books of dvds.
As the main branch of the public library, this branch is adequate at best. It is conveniently located next to the Peachtree Center Marta station.
This Kirkwood branch library is convenient to several intown neighborhoods and the staff is friendly and helpful.
Probably not the best library around but it is very convenient for the intown neighborhoods. Lots of homeless people use this in their job searches. This means there are people hanging around outside and the bathrooms smell (and are sort of gross). I hope to see improvements over the next few years.
Beautiful facility but the staff needs to be replaced. Rude and uninviting is not what you need in a public place like a library.
