This is wonderful library. To me it represents the best of the American Dream. People of all races and ethnicities together in harmony enjoy all of the media of a free society in a state-of-the-art facility.
Gurnee has a great tax base thanks to A Great America amusement park and a booming shopping mall. This library is one of the perks, the main one if you ask me.
There is a huge parking lot with free parking. It has a nice little café and gift shop as you enter. There is a used book store where you can buy books for cheap donated by patrons.
The main library is huge, airy, spacious and well organized. There are up-to-date book selections, and of course DVDs, VHS tapes, audio books, etc.
There is a lovely quiet room where the silence is delicious. There are banks of free computers with huge screens featuring fast internet access. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is delightful art on the walls.
There is free wi-fi throughout the library, with convenient electrical outlets. There are bunches of study carrels, big windows looking out on the suburban greenery, beautiful high ceilings with great lighting.
Please don't take this place for granted! Mankind has dreamed about this kind of place for generations; we get to enjoy the fruits of their labors and their sacrifices. God Bless America!
