.

Located near/within Chinatown, there is a noticeable selection of Chinese Reading materials and collection of DVDs. Second to the Main Library Branch, I enjoy the brightly lit library and its friendly librarians.

However, with only the top floor dedicated to Adult and Young Adult reading materials, space seems small and tables are very limited. I usually find a spot on one of the long tables, read until boredom overtakes me, and then take off to a nearby restaurant.

Cable Car runs past this branch, but parking is a difficulty. No parking structure within two blocks. Would not suggest even trying to search for street parking.

From experience, its usually better to just take public transportation. (If you happen to find parking, usually you would need to move your car within two hours - unless it's a Sunday.)

PROS: Quiet enough
CONS: No parking
