Almost too many choices for different work styles. Coffee shop on the first floor with awesome coffee and steve smith teas, whisper silent work areas, free conference rooms to jump in on short notice and a balcony on the top floor that overlooks the Columbia and all of downtown Vancouver.Outlets can be found on the 4th floor to the right of the stairs, in the nonfiction section.

    The two-hour parking limit is the biggest issue here.

  • 4th floor has nice bar with view towards Columbia River. 5th floor has cushy seating, if preferred, and is designated as the quiet level.

    Great workspace. 5th floor is best. They even have a fireplace. Beautiful outdoor patio too. Only problem is parking is only 2 hours and is enforced. friend got a ticket.

    I’m here on Wed around 2:30pm and it’s been quiet on the 4th floor. Only five other people working on the counter tops which are an ideal height for laptops. The network is quite variable, anywhere from 3 -15 Mb/s so don’t come here if you’re looking for quick speeds and reliability.

    If you’re craving more substantial food within walking distance, hit up Thai Orchid. It’s about four blocks away along with other fast casual dining options: Woody’s Tacos (and burritos), Vinnie’s Pizza, and Sushi Mo.

    If you like this library, be sure to check out Beaverton City Library. It’s roomy and open as well. And they have a killer CD collection which this library is lacking.

    Tables on the 4th floor and counter tops have built-in plugs. 3rd floor is kid’s floor and isn’t really conducive to workers as the tables are teeny and full of children 🙂 5th floor is fabulous with a deck and in the winter, they keep their fires lit. Cozy 🙂 They also have a Thatcher’s coffee bar on the first floor at the back when you first walk in and they are currently offering Dapper & Wise coffee. Baristas are always fantastic.
