Nashville Public Library - Review

Going to a library may not be on your itinerary as a tourist. But make it to the Nashville Public Library. It is simply gorgeous. A haven for avid readers. It will make you stop doing whatever it is you are doing and grab a book and read. The natural sunlight shining through gives this Library natural light and warmth. There are marble floors and stairs and a courtyard in the middle. The grand reading room is exquisite with copper relief panels above the book stacks. They depict history of Nashville. Admire the murals present in the hallways and on all three floors. There is a wonderful collection of books, and lots of art and historical photo exhibits. The courtyard has a fountain with bronze statues, next to the children’s area.

Nashville Public Library, Nashville Reviews

  • Recently recognized as the best library in the country, which is well deserved. I mostly come for the children's programming, which blows away any other library I've been to...the puppet shows and story times are terrific. The library also validates parking for 1.5 hours free in their garage. They also have a great civil rights section and a special exhibit that changes regularly and is worth checking out.

  • Beautiful. Spacious. Grand. It's extremely nice and has a civil rights room dedicated to the desegregation of Nashville. I like to go there to study or just work on other stuff. It's peaceful.

  • Great Library!!! So many things to do and so many books, activities.... middle of downtown... So many homeless people are inside (Shelter to get cold air during summer and heat during winter)

  • Amazing place and great speaker, so much to learn about here. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because I had a bad experience which was due to another individual who was on the tour and because of his bad behavior, our speaker was interrupted and security took him away. Other than that,walking in I was blown away with how beautiful it is. My favorite part was the civil rights movement movie they show.

  • It's my first time in downtown Nashville on a bright Saturday afternoon. Happened to be a convention happening in the galleries all about writing and fiction and fans of fiction. Plenty of parking for the day and helpful staff getting my way around. Had a lot of fun! The library is a swell welcome and first stop to those coming into Nashville!
