I just moved to the city and first thing I did was to get a membership for Central Library. I just applied online and they sent my library card within a week to my home address. I could easily hold my first book on the online system and I just picked it up other day. The library is amazing and huge! It has so many sections such as kid’s, DVDs for music&movie, special exhibition of Mark Twain, 3D printing, computers for scanning and printing. This is one of the best libraries I had visited and I cannot wait to go there and spend more time. Considering that everything is free, I think everyone in the city should benefit from it and get a membership! Thank you for your amazing service. :)

My kids and I come here as much as we can and today we made it to the Black History Month program featuring Black Inventors! They had a ball🥰 We did crafts and checked out books of course. Sometimes we take the train downtown to make it an adventure, were so lucky to have this beautiful library with amazing exhibits.

In an age where many libraries would be dying this one has done its best to keep up with the times. Completely modernized and doing its best to appeal to a new generation. They don’t just house books, they also have a recording studio, 3-D printers, numerous collections and regular events to keep the public engaged. Really impressive and worth many return visits.

Just what a library ought to be, serving the public with knowledgeable staff willing to help anyone and accommodate all teams of needs in the mission to grant people access to learning. The space itself is pleasant and open, the facilities comfortable... just a nice place to go. The grounds surrounding the library are beautifully maintained, full of lovely flowers and nicely cared- for plants and trees.

Very nice Experience! Friendly staff! I really enjoyed the Mark Twain Room. A must see for all visitors to Downtown Buffalo!

Not a bad facility. I just wish the the security had a more descreet manner in dealing with drowsy patrons. It sort of defeats the purpose of studying or getting work done at a library when every fifteen minutes altercations can be heard between guards and patrons over sleeping habits; Very distracting in todays ADHD culture.Its gone out of hand since the days I first started utilizing the librarys resources.and services. Whats the problem? Arent the gaurds allowed to teaze unruly patrons and sell them to Buffalo Zoo? Imagine how much revenue not would generate without burdening tax payers.Come on Erie County! Time to think outside the box!

Came to print shipping labels and noticed the advertising for the book sale. I wish I had known about it sooner but I had about an hour left and rushed upstairs. Found a lot of cool cds! And the staff were very helpful and friendly and helped me bag my stuff. Even though I might have taken a few minutes passed 4pm to finish up.Best library in the city for a reason. 👍

Amazing location, beautiful inside out, especially inside. The options are limitless, I could spend days getting lost in the smell of old books and browsing new books. Their music selection is the best of all libraries I’ve visited. Kids can really enjoy the amenities and the variety of books available
