Wow, what a stunning building. Every librarian I encountered was helpful and friendly! The selection of books was amazing and I truly would love to give this branch 5 stars but there was entirely to much noise from unattended children going on for a library. Otherwise a phenomenal branch definitely should give a visit just maybe when children are in school instead.

Every single review in the past 6-8 weeks are noice complaints about children. When will staff get involved and stop this? I come here everyday in trying to completely my homework for nursing school because it’s a 2 min walking distance only to be greeted by screaming children running around everywhere and no one even staff doing anything about it. I’d love to get a hold of the upper management and get them involved and get them to involve their staff to ask the parents of these kids to take them to a park or something. What’s the point of this library if it’s just a playground of screaming children.

New library with good facilities

Why would anyone give a 2-star rating to this well equipped, modern, and gorgeous 18 million dollar library in an excellent area with very helpful staff? One word: children. No area in the library will shield you from screaming, crying, jumping, screeching, and wailing of at least three dozen of kids. There is no room where you can sit down and in a piece and quiet read or study. None. Who in their right mind builds a children's playground in the middle of a library? A library - an establishment synonymous with peace and quiet. You spent 18 million dollars and could not figure out how to separate the playground from the rest of the library? Or at least soundproof it? It's like building a casino inside of a bank. So yes 2-star is more than deserved just on the account of great staff and gorgeous building. Otherwise, it would have been 1 star. My advice is: find what you want on their website, pick it up at the library, and get the hell out of there before screaming and crying eliminates your will to exist. But, this is part of the much larger problem in America with this "kid fetish", where every single establishment has to conform to "family-friendly" activities in which adults have to reluctantly participate. Restaurants. parks, public pools, museums, workplaces, picnics, state fairs, movie theaters, you name it, and now libraries. Adulthood has essentially been eliminated.

Went once to check it out, wandered around the shelves of books, but couldn’t get away from the loudness of children playing - it was like I was outside at a playground, not in a library. Not the children’s fault, or the parents - the library, in classic contemporary fashion, was built that way, complete with play equipment that encourages preschoolers to really jump around and play their little hearts out - I’m all for that, I’m a parent myself, but in a library? The grownup section is like 20 feet away, with no dividing wall at all; it’s all just one big area, like Puzzles Fun Dome, except with the addition of shelves of books to run around and climb on. Wanting some peace and quiet, I tried the glass enclosed study areas, but alas, they are completely open at the top, so there is no noise reduction, so what’s the point? Probably won’t be back. Even the downtown branch with the homeless patrons is more peaceful; at least the children’s area is self enclosed (and still quieter than Northeast). Everything at the Northeast Branch is very nice and new (although ultra-modern bordering on ugly) - give me downtown or Crescent Hill anyday, at least they seem like a real library, or is that now a quaint old fashioned notion?

Beautiful design with a massive book collection. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. I'm an old school book nerd so this place is my new "slice of heaven!!!". For Dr Who fans...the library is kind of like the TARDIS..."It's bigger on the inside.". No matter where I walked in the library there were rows and rows which appeared to never stop.

Definitely close to home, which we needed for this area.lived here for over 15 yrs

I hate seeing all of the negative reviews. I feel this is a family-friendly library where my little bookworms (baby, 3 and 5) beg to visit on a daily basis. Sure my big kids like to slide a few times and visit with friends, but then they pick out a few books each and we find a place to sit and read together.

I love the new northeast library Its beautiful

Jeanne Parks

Beautiful inside and out!

Nathan Green

Located on a beautiful campus, this Louisville Free Public Library features a wonderfully decorated and open floor plan with several study rooms, reading nooks, meeting rooms and plenty of seating. The design is amazing with zigzags and angles that continuously keep your eyes wandering to something new. The children's section is also a play space with a slide and hiding places. Also featured here are a green screen room for video production, a maker space that serves as a classroom, a kitchen and a music studio for recording. Coming soon is a Quills coffee shop.

Jun Park

This is a beautiful library! But is there a way to try and manage the noise levels inside? I know there are a lot of fun, kid friendly activities, but the screaming and yelling is a bit excessive. Especially for a library. If the study rooms were fully closed off that would help too.

Maria Apolinar

Absolutely amazing library with tons of programs for children and adults alike. Speaking of children, the other reviews are accurate. They are everywhere, running around screaming and playing. Fortunately, I usually just stop by to pick up a book and don’t need to stick around but I could see it being difficult for groups to meet up for school projects or study with the noise. However, it meets my needs. Five stars.

David Evans

FACILITY: beyond beautiful, the best! ATMOSPHERE: could be the most peaceful environment for study, but disturbingly loud; distracted by unmonitored children. STAFF: knowledgeable and helpful regarding resources, except completely deaf to noise and chaos. ADMINISTRATION: poor management and at risk of losing community interest and funding. FIRST IMPRESSION: Louisville does not need an indoor playground, it needs a sanctuary for education and intelligence.

Emily Cross

I would love to give 5 stars for this amazingly beautiful library but it feels and sounds more like a children’s playground. The children’s area should be completely closed off from the rest of this beautiful and what could be serene and peaceful library. Every time I’ve gone there it’s screaming, crying and children running through the library. There is no peace or quiet, even in the secluded glass rooms which are open at the top and let in all the noise from kids. Something needs to be reconfigured, parents are not monitoring and the library isn’t enforcing any rules of quiet that I’ve seen in other facilities. The staff are friendly and helpful but something needs to be done. This amazing facility is being wasted and misused as a playground. Get rid of the children’s area and move it. Thanks.
