They've been renovating this library. On the whole it's been okay. However, there seems to be a new policy of letting people use the Wifi to facetime and watch loud movies without headphones. I'm not talking about the kids - I'm talking about the adults. They also moved the DVD area so it is now right next to the reading areas. People come in to get DVD's now and are very loud. At least one member of the staff the other day expressed an unwillingness to deal with loud people. A man was loudly facetiming his family in an area where teens go to study. For this reason, I can't give this library any more than two stars.

Although the people are nice, this library was a complete let down. Hardly any books and the atmosphere doesn't match the beautiful outdoor area. Hopefully it gets an upgrade soon!

The staff are great and respectful. They will go out of their way to try and find a book for you, even if they don't have it at this library!

The internet was abysmally slow; worse than other libraries I've been to and I used to go to OC libraries for at least an hour and a half once a week (sometimes twice). And the parking structure is extremely stressful to park in because it is underground, dark, and has water everywhere -that is, once you find the parking structure (I circled the block 3 times before I found it.)

The library is in a nice area and has a good atmosphere, but the internet was not sufficient to get homework done.
