St Petersburg Main Library at 3701 9th Avenue North

I can see it from my back yard, so can walk there anytime. Have been coming here almost a decade. It was entirely remodeled over a year ago, much better now. Many computers plus plush seats with floor plugs for laptoppers. Carpeting throughout adds to quietness. Vending machines by front door and huge meeting room. Smaller meeting room and enclosed computer room.

Children with adults in computer area get a bit loud at times, sometimes you can hear headphone music nearby. A lot of books here throughout two floors. Rear outdoor deck overlooking lake. Panoramic lake view indoor rear area with more plush seats. Large area for children. Security guard usually there. Bicycle thefts not unknown here. On bus line. Video-monitored parking lots on east and west side.
