Reviews for Alameda Free Library

Sad. That a town I grew up in, has RUDE people in it. Don't expect to come here and get treated equally. Lady who works upstairs named "Lauren" told me I couldn't book a room. Came last week and a different lady helped me and booked a room for me when I asked. Asked for my name and got my room an hour later.. I know there can be a wait. But today, this lady told me there was nothing she could do for me. So, I walked to see, and to my surprise I see two empty rooms... Two full review

Kid section is great! Many activities and puzzles, tons of books, great reading programs to make reading more exciting for kiddos. Dawn is the best librarian; she always greets us with a smile and is really knowledgeable and friendly. She even remembers my 18 month old by name and talks to him

I love how spacious this library is. There are tons of seating you can station yourself at with many outlets. Parking is available but very limited. You could always take the alameda shuttle here! Printing is available here even if you don't have a library card which was a life saver for me. There are a lot of computers you can use. This is my go to place when I'm in the area when I have to study or just to kill some time. This library is very clean too! A big plus.
