This library is fairly new so the appearance is great and the equipment is in good quality. However, the hours of operation aren't as accommodating to visitors.

This library was the one I frequented throughout my childhood and I'm happy to see that it's finally receiving lots of remodeling! The surrounding libraries have been beautifully transformed, I can't wait to see this new improved Pearl Library!

I probably use this library the most because of location. It is small by modern standards, but has enough stuff and programs to keep me happy. Most of the San Jose libraries are getting remodeled, so hopefully this one too. After school times and weekends busier and hard to get parking, as its a small lot. I rarely need any help from staff but helpful enough when needed. Restrooms were clean. Near Oakridge Mall

The Pearl Branch Library in San Jose has made some recent changes to its building. Parking is scarce on a Saturday but the rest of the week it is not a problem. They have moved the drop off book box to the front of the building however people tend to park there anyway and the library does not police this space. Inside the library has a fairly large childrens section however there is not enough self-checkout machines to go around. The library doesnt really limit how many books an individual can check out, so on a busy day it might take up to a half an hour to get your books checked out. The Holds section is always being moved, but there are signs letting the patron know where there holds are. The staff is friendly, if a little aggressive in their ability to help you. The self checkout is easy to use but Ive had staff approach me several times asking if I needed help even before all of my books are out of my arms. The Pearl branch needs some serious upgrading because I think the current layout cannot hold all the books that the branch gets. There are shelves in the middle of the walk area that hold new releases and the internet area seems too cramped.

PROS: friendly staff
CONS: not big enough, no parking on Saturdays
