The Rochester Public Library is located in the heart of downtown Rochester. It is an easy place to drop in to on lunch or on a break from work, to browse or just relax. The building is airy and bright, and there is a lovely reading garden for the nice weather. Members have free Internet use. The library is well organized by genre and the friendly staff go out of their way to help you find what you are looking for. However, the collection is split between two buildings, the old and the new ones.
