This library takes the term "luxurious" to a new level. It is well appointed with many plasma tvs (to display announcements), a cafe, and tons of new computers and meeting spaces. The furnishings are very comfy, and the place feels homely. The exterior is reminiscent of a mansion. And there is lots of nice landscaping. But, I do not really like this library for several reasons. One, the shelves are bare and many of the books that are here aren't current. Two, some of the staff are not too helpful. And, lastly, it is hard to access the books. (For a summer reading project assigned to 900 students, having only three copies of one of the allowed books is pretty bad.) I would prefer to have a less opulent library that had more books, music, periodicals, and videos/DVDs than this behemoth. Still, it is a beauty!
