Often described as the ideal image of a library, Linden Hills has everything library users love. Window seats under leaded glass panes that invite sunshine in, cozy lounge chairs in the magazine area, outdoor reading terraces, two historic fireplaces--all this and more add to the charm of the lovely brick building that was thoroughly renovated in 2002.

Now state-of-the-art computer workstations blend in side-by-side with restored wooden book shelves and vintage furniture.
The two-story lobby, with an elevator added for accessibility, invites people of all ages to come in and enjoy.
