I got poor cust service at this library and said more about it but as I did so on a ""library computer"" it would not ""publish it"" the employees need to communicate with each other. one told me one thing and after I went biy instructions of one employee the other has been very rude as he did not know the instructions I got from the other. he basically started to stalk me about instructions another employee went by because I went by them. I finally talked to my director who said she would handle... it but not too heartfelt. I have had several other things I have had to handle since I moved to Bloomington IN ....I am a health care worker ...I had to report a case a girl illegally took from a company to make sure they got better care. I got poor car repair...in which the police had to call the ""Mechanics"" and I got hit by a car and had to get a lawyer as the student lied about it (not from my better area of NORTH INDIANA). I was raised by a father who very democratically worked 12 hours a day ad a mother with a successful career who retired at 82. Do not consider me a part of your shoddy unresponsible community with the things I have had to handle in ever approaching ME when YOU do not have the communication with each other as employees to provide customer service to the public after the thigs I have seen of Bloomington in general and I dont even consider myself a part of the community and also no longer do health care as it is also so inferior to other areas... I use my secretarial degree. Ive had enough shoddy things to handle myself besides the problems of any Bloomingtons library with not having the ability to communicate with each other..the attempt to ""peg"" the public ...Bloomington is a town so inferior in so many things Ihave had several thing Ihave had to deal with myself that where I am from one would never have to. .

This library is very nice now due to its recent expansion. Being a student here, I was able to check out mostly recreational books out for use. The only reason I gave this a 5 still is because I have been spoiled by much better libraries back in naperville,IL. this library is good for what it is and will make nearly everyone happy. I do most of my new release and novel renting there since the school library isn't very good for that. Being a student it is good to have a school library and this library since it brings me best of both worlds. This library has a really nice staff and selection is very good for its size. I would highly recommend it.

PROS: selection, structure, size, books, staff
CONS: not as good as top tier but pretty close

I love the Bloomington Library. They have the best programs for children of all ages. There are story times, puppet play, and special events for the kids. They have a very large childrens book area, complete with two areas for the kids to play. One of the areas is it's own room with toys to play with, music to listen to, and a seperate area for babies. They also have toys to check out, and the people at the help desk are friendly. You can find lots of information about the community there as well.

PROS: Children's programs, selection

Our library here is sweet. Obviously or all of the derelicts in town wouldn't hang out outside breaking all of the city non smoking ordinances. I like to go to the libraries online website and request all of the new releases coming out on dvd. They usually have a wait list, but who cares it's free, right? Then I just pick them up at the drive-thru window. They also have free internet acsess inside. And they have people to help with taxes at taxtime.

I really do love our library! It has always been a great library, but since the expansion I think it is world class. They have an incredible staff ( although I have to say that I have encountered a few who are a tad rude) who are knowledgable and seem excited about all of the services the library offers. They have activities for kids, a really cool drive through window, and an awesome audio visual department. You can even browse and reserve stuff online. It's exceptional.
