Library has short hours making it difficult to get to after work. The checkout desk staff is usually helpful. Best option for free books in New Haven if you're not a college student. Online portal has been nice and easy to use to checkout a slowly growing selection of eBooks. Don't go in the bathroom, seems to be the hotspot for illegal transactions
I cannot come back to this particular location because of some bigoted male sexist employees. A pervert of an older male security guard who couldn't keep his hands to himself one day and an uncaring unhelpful male librarian who both need to get with the times about how to treat a lady when she's reasonably unhappy. The city librarian strikes me as a very lazy uncaring woman who would not return my calls and accommodate my requests for a private study room. I think their policy on the study rooms is a joke The few times I was there the patrons are mostly male. Women will not visit this library for a reason. Thank goodness I found another library with friendlier caring more professional staff who doesn't take complaints way too personally.
