This branch is small, but has a good selection of kids' books, fiction, and non-fiction, plus AV media. It is very popular in the neighborhood, as was clear when St. Paul tried to close it. This branch runs a lot of programs for kids and adults. I know there is a meeting room with a fireplace in the basement, but I've never been down there.
On a good (cooler) day, I can walk to this one. In fact, I walked there a lot until I started take classes at the U; at that point, two other libraries that are on my bus routes took over.
