All about the Detroit Public Library (Main Branch)

Check it out at least once!

The main library of Detroit also known as the Detroit Public Library, is a great place for activities and events. The Public Library in Detroit's cultural district is the largest library in the city and is where many people come to get the info they need, as well as for events and activities. The library is one of my favorite places to go because I can find so much info on just about anything I need.

When I started learning Korean, there were plenty of resources to help me in the foreign language department. I also come in to the computer lab every now and then if my internet connection is bad. The computer lab is great and you can use a computer for up to an hour at a time.

The Library is also great for kids activities. I went to a lot of kids activities when I was younger and they still hold many nowadays. Activities range from crafts to story telling time and the kids really enjoy it. Not to mention they even have computer classes for the kids which can help out a lot. There is usually something going on every weekend for the children and young adults.

The Library also holds art galleries from time to time ranging from paintings to photography. During the famous Noel Night that is held in the cultural district during Christmas time, the library is a great place to go for even more activities relating to the holidays.

One thing I must also mention is the architecture of the building. It's one of my favorite architectural buildings in the city, featuring a classical Italian style done by famous architect Cass Gilbert. When you're inside the place feels huge even though from the outside it may not look that big.

So if you are looking for some good books, activities, or even just information, give the main branch of the Detroit Public Library a visit. It is also near other places like the Detroit Science Center and right across the street from the Detroit Institute of Arts.
