“The most technologically advanced library in America!”

The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library dates back to 1838, making it the first public library funded by tax dollars in the state of Ohio. Main Library has stood as a downtown landmark since it opened on September 5, 1940. Welcoming more than a half-a-million visitors a year who check out nearly one million items, Main Library is home to 1.2 million books, CDs, videos, DVDs and reference materials, the fifth largest public library collection in the state of Ohio. For the past several years, The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library has been ranked among the best libraries in the nation by the Hennen American Public Library Rating (HALPR) index. In August of 2001, a 271,000 square foot, $45.1 million renovation and expansion to Main Library was unveiled, opening one of the most technologically advanced public libraries in America

My parents use this library quite a bit and have always spoken highly of it. Very well stocked and has a wide selection of books on tape (great for road trips!). You will need a card to access a computer or the Internet, so bring your ID with you.

The building itself is a work of art, I'm surprised there aren't any good pictures of it on here.
