My experience there was interesting because there were many books. I also thought it was quiet. It was a good experience because there were also comics that I liked. The staff there was really helpful. It was very bright that made it easy to see.

My tutor Ricky and I came back to this branch library on Wednesday to pick up 2 movies which I had rented. These were "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" and "Up," both with closed captions and audio descriptions. The librarian who assisted us at the desk was very friendly, and she had both movies right away. Additionally the 2 people with whom I spoke on the phone when asking to have these held for me, were very friendly.

My other tutor Ricky and I came to this location of the library recently to inquire about a new service called Hoopla. Both librarians with whom we spoke were very friendly and helpful, and they got us exactly what we needed. Then at the end of last week Ricky and I registered on the Hoopla website. Their site is mostly accessible with both the screen reading software on my MacBook, but there are some problem areas which I contacted Hoopla about. I was able to borrow 3 music albums though with a little bit of help from Ricky. I'm pleased with this service so far.

This is one of my favroite librarys to go to because it is big(four floors),and it is accessible for people in wheelchairs(not me)(door that opens with a push of a button,and elevators that goes to every floor).I come here for my condo board meetings,and I always like that one room in the top floor with the high ceiling.Not far from the buses,and trains(201 goes right by,and cta purple,and metra is a few blocks west from there).And everytime that I come in there is a sculpture thats hang from the ceilng in the main entrance that I like to look up at.
