.

With the main branch of the library a few short blocks away, it can be forgiven that the South End branch is fairly small. Though it occupies two floors with a fairly large footprint on Tremont Street, almost the entire top floor is community meeting space. That leaves precious little space for books and other materials.

The library tends to be loud during the day which makes it more of a place to browse for things and take them with you rather than stay and do reading.

The connection to the Internet, while free, is particularly flaky so bringing your own PC won't get you much as far as WiFi connectivity goes.

The library does a fair trade in movie "rentals" which was a bit of a surprise. And their children's book selection is quite extensive. We tend to browse in Borders nearby then reserve the books online for pickup at the branch.
