This is the library of the city with a number of branches in the neighborhood. A rich man named Enoch Pratt applied to the council as a request to accept his donation of this free library for all citizens who wanted to use it. He donated the whole well equipped building on which he invested millions even in those times in which the amount was a hefty.
The interiors of this large library are remarkably beautiful. The walls and ceilings are all done with golden wash and form the best part of the Central Building. This is still a non- profit institute that comes in use for all needy citizens who may or may not be able to afford so many rare and expensive books. This work of noble cause earned Enoch Pratt so much name and fame that he became one of the best social workers known till date here.

The staff is friendly and helpful. Good, mid-sized library with plenty of computers available. Nice building.
Friendly place. Many kids programs during the week and weekend. Like a second home to my 3 kids. They listened to nursery rhymes when they were babies, flipped through books as toddler, now read by themselves at school age. They love going.
I live in the neighborhood so I go there quite often. The staff are efficient and courteous. I recommend this library to anyone who wants to be at a place somewhat off the beaten track.
Nice little neighborhood branch library.
Very inviting. Polite and efficient staff members.
