Of course now they are working on the new building so it's not what it once was, but traditionally, this is THE best library in Minneapolis. By far the most extensive, most accessible and user friendly. I have always enjoyed the features to look books up online and have them waiting at whichever library you wanted to go to and the selection is great.
I have grown frustrated with MPLS's libraries because they only have 3 north of Dwtn-- one of which [North] has been closed for 2 years for remodeling, the other two are pitifully small [Webber & NE]. South Mpls has been blessed with uh.........8 is it? Dwtn used to be the best and will be again soon but in the mean time us northern folks are kinda stuck ;)
It would be wonderful if there were more or better equipped libraries around.
