I love this library because they have a wonderful collection of new DVDs not only in English, but also in Hindi. Sometimes it seems like the new English DVDs are available right at the same time as the DVDs are available in regular retail stores! The great thing is that you don't have to pay for it. Unlike some other libraries where you have to pay $1 to put something on hold, here you only have to pay 25 cents. They also have a nice selection of current magazines all the time and the best part is that there are so many comfy chairs scattered throughout the place to sit in and enjoy your reading!

I have been to this library for 15 years. It has gone through some major renovation about 10 years ago. It is not quite as nice as some of the new library (Santa Clara, for example) but it is still a good place.

Love this library. We live in sunynvale and visit this library every week. Their collection of feature and non feature films is really large. My kid loves the kids section. Its a nice cozy place to sit and read with your child. Staff is friendly and helpful.

I live in santa clara and so had never thought of driving all the way to the sunnyvale library. Last month, I went there to see a puppet show. My 4 year old had a lot of fun.It was a very professional show with an orchestra, narrator, puppets and they had set a good stage. Look at their website for upcoming kids shows.

Good selection of books and movies, and a very nice kids area. It's usually pretty crowded, but then again all the libraries in the area usually are. They have some computers set up for kids' games.

My family has visited the childrens books section here frequently. The selection is quite large, and the librarians are helpful when you ask for a specific book or category. We enjoy the childrens story time in the evening. They have a large collection of videos and other formats.

This library is pretty good for general reading. The kids section is small and though they do have some activities, it isn't like some of the other libraries i've been to. They used to lend DVDs and cassettes free...but they no more do. It's $1.50 for 3 days after which u have a late fee. I think they have begun improving their services...but they can do better.

This is a very nice library. You can get anything here. The thing that most catches your eye is their selection of movies. Its not like an ordibary library where they have one copy of every DVD. Here you see like 4 copies or your favorite new release. They have great librarians here. They are always really glad to help you. Like my kids had to get some books about the Russian revolution after communism for school project. The problem was was that we were the last of the clasmates to come, so all of the books were already checked out. The librarian really took the time to discuss the topic and figuire out what other books could be helpful with the reasearch of the topic. She really seemed t care and walked around the library with my daughter showing her where to find every book. Great service.

good selection of books and movies. However you have to pay for feature films and you only get them for two days, still $1.50 is cheaper than what you would pay and any video rental store. The selection of films is very large. organized alphabetically by title. They usually get the films as soon as they are out on DVD and often their are multiple copies. Most of the movies are on DVD, but there is also a VHS section The library also has a foreing collection of books and movies. Has summer reading programs for both adults and kids.
