This place is a wonderful hidden gem in the city. Easy access downtown by bay Lots of parking easy turn in lots of handicapped spaces. Upon entry is a circulating desk with helpful and friendly staff. Bring a proof of address and signing up for your library card takes less than 5 minutes. Upon entry is the amazing idea lab. What a great place to learn about 3d printing and to start making your own projects. On the ground floor is nonfiction to the right a teen annex and off the left the children's are . Up on the second floor accessible by stairs and elevator is the fiction as well as large area of computers and study tables. Place is clean and well lit. They have selection of magazines audiobooks and online TV and videos to use. Highly recommend

I love love love the library! Going tomorrow! Great variety of classics as well as new books and easy to put your "must reads" on HOLD in which they will notify you when they are available to come pick up!

Recommended even though there is construction. Study rooms are available, and staff is very friendly and accommodating. However, schedules are not always up to date, which can interfere with scheduled study hours and waste a study trip.


Hope it stays funded and open for decades to come. Easily one of the best places to go for learning new stuff, meeting and even job searching. Best of all It's free!

They are very friendly

Our first visit to this library after just moving to the area. We were more than impressed. There is a security guard at the main entrance. We didn't realize at first that the library was not the only facility in this large building. This library is well organized and offers something for all members (membership is free for local residents). Aside from the Idea Lab, where you can learn new hobbies and use equipment - from crafts supplies to 3-D printers (there is a fee for materials used in these printers), you can rent books, make photocopies, send faxes, and use the computer lab. and Wi-Fi. The staff was extremely helpful as we were lost trying to find a few books, being new and all. There is a special section on the top floor where you can read books, but they cannot leave the room. Lots of history displayed in that room. We didn't check out the kids and teen section, but they seemed nice and bright as well. We noticed several cozy sitting areas, and it was quiet! Need a meeting room? They are available. Next to the library is a small shop where you can buy used books, puzzles, postcards, t-shirts, toys and other items to support the library. Hungry from all the exploring? We had a tasty (cheap) sandwich at the coffee shop next to the book shop. There is a nice, bright area with tables and comfortable chairs. You can buy a sandwich, hot dog, pop, coffee, snack or candy and take a short break before heading to the Erie Maritime Museum next door.

Blasco Library is where you can nestle into a cozy chair, in front of a picture window framing the docked Flagship Niagara with a good book in hand.

Nathan Wingerter

They are like agents in the matrix when you use the computers there....where is the girl with the dragon tattoo?

The quiet study area with windows all around is absolutely beautiful. It is the best place to study.

I will admit that it has been awhile since I have stepped into the main branch. I was sorely disappointed in the changes that I' ve seen. It was warm and inviting. Now it's cold and sterile, I would not want to stay and indulge my passion for books there. Very sad.

Adam Rosenthal

Morgan Janney

Beautiful campus and the staff was so eager to help with me with all of my needs even though I was from out of state.

Brian Walker

It's a library. What's not to love? And this one is great- the building, staff, book selection. ........ I'm not from Erie- I absolutely did not want to move here. ...... Been here about 3 years- if it wasn't for my love of books and this wonderful library I would have been really lost!!! ..... When I go back home it's one of maybe .... 3 things I will actually miss about Erie! .......

The place is massive with a wide variety of books. A library card is easy to aquire. Great view of the water, great for spending a quiet day out of the house.

Jocelyn Bones

People are nice!

Julia Goff

Large library located on Lake Erie and adjacent to the Maritime Museum. The large windows offer natural lighting within the library plus views of olden time boats on Lake Erie. There is a used bookshop/giftshop with friendly staff, an encloses teen area, an audio recording room, and a 2nd floor. Really not a bad stop for a tourist or a local who wants to quietly enjoy their day.

Erika Nicewonger

friendly staff, large selection, beautiful building!

Kelly Dyleski

My friends and I go here often to get away from the hustle and bustle of the average places to go to.

Nancy Mills

I love this library! Great selection and nice atmosphere. The staff is very nice. Good selection of art books and had the newer books I was looking for also, on science and economics (for general public.)

I travel all the way from North East, PA to Blasco because not only do they have a better variety and selection of books. They are so much more friendly there. I always get greeted when I enter and leave. A few librarians have even started getting to know me.

Love this library. We live in summit, but prefer to drive to blasco because of the size and selection. The children's area is awesome for my son and it's off to the side so my son and i can read to each other without disrupting others

Wonderful library with helpful staff. In addition to books, they have classes, children's events, sewing machines, software, 3d printers, a recording studio, and tons of resources for people to use. It's great to the library adapting to the times and serving the community.

alysa dehaven

I love Erie's library. Lots of activities throughout the year, nice staff, clean, and friendly environment.

Rachel Dixon

Best library we have ever been to in Pennsylvania.

Daniel Gennaro

You don't know how nice your library is till you travel to other cities. We're so lucky to have such an enormous sized library. Let alone the sheer amount of books, cds and dvds they allow you to rent at a time! Some library's only allow up to 5 or so. The Erie library is a true gem. I hope it continues to grow over the years. It's beautiful and everyone is super friendly! Yeah there might be some noisy homeless in there once in awhile but it's nice they allow them a place to relax and especially stay warm in the winter.

Lindsy Coon

Very nice and clean library. I really like the private study rooms

Suzana Laus

Gina Marie

The city of Erie is actively taking steps to make this library better and better. There's a ton of resources, and the new Idea Labs are amazing. The ground floor was just removed, and it looks great! Totally worth a visit if you haven't been in awhile.

Dustin Brace

Huge selection. Building could use some updates but it is a really great library. A true asset to Erie and its citizens.

Erika kokhanevich

Very nice, organized so that I can find my books easily

Loyal Schreiber

A wonderful facility with one of the worst parking lots you can imagine. There are not enough parking spaces and to walk through the lot to get to the library is hazardous. Plus, the lot is shared with the Nautical Museum next door. An unbelievably flawed situation for such a great library.

Eric Brozell

A great location with plenty of secure bike racks near front door. A bike trail passes right in front of the library.

Stephen Chase

Best part of Erie County Pennsylvania!!
