  • This library has a decent resident selection and since they are tied to the rest of the Santa Clara city library service AND NOW, the Link+ group, it is much easier to get access to harder to find...

  • Love this library so much! Two floors, overlooking the park with beautiful big windows. Tons of natural light. Nice sculptures. Huge selection of books, short hold wait times. Recently moved the video game selection from behind the desk out where you can view them (still need to pickup the disk from the desk which is more than reasonable). Upstairs will sometimes have puzzle out for people to try. Great angled tables for drawing. Tons of computers. Many quiet places to sit and read. They even had a complimentary gift wrapping station during the holidays! Very sweet and friendly library staff including security during the pandemic.
  • My favourite library in the south bay. Great collection of books, well laid out with clearly demarcated sections by age and type. They also consistently host a lot of events including the monthly book sale every third Saturday of the month - it's all-you-can-get in a grocery bag for five bucks. The space they have on the top floor is a reader's paradise - with leather armchairs and ottomans, side tables with a reading lamp, a warm fireplace and all of this overlooking the greenery of the adjacent Central park. The Library has tall ceilings and large windows at many places which makes it feel very open. Library membership is free and allows you free access to numerous museums in the county as well. Loads of parking available - both outdoors and on the basement level.
