Directly across from the Riverwalk and on Old Main Street, this library is a delight. Manatee County allows anyone to sign up to use a computer, no need for a library card. Stacks of free information publications published in Manatee County.
There are separate conference rooms for individuals or groups, although you can hear their chatter. Apparently the library is built on a bluff, as you have to climb several steps at the front entrance and none at the rear entrance. Security guard always on duty.
Good place to relax after taking a long stroll along the Riverwalk or stopping at nearby Main Street shops and restaurants.
